Did you know that the first Tuesday of September is World Art Drop Day? Well, it is, and guess what — that day is today.

Several years ago Jake Parker of Provo, Utah came up with World Art Drop Day as a means of connecting people through random acts of creativity. The premise is simple: all artists — a.k.a. anyone and everyone who creates — are invited to drop a piece of art and tell someone where to find it. Locally, The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is encouraging artists to participate. Head to their Facebook page to print off instructions.

Here's how it works:

1. Draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
2. Take a photo of the art and/or the hiding spot.
3. Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on social media. Include #artdropday.

Boom. You just added a little bit of sunshine to someone's Tuesday. Carry on, artists of the world.

World Art Drop Day is this Tuesday September 5th! - All artists, (that means students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, photographers and printmakers; EVERYONE who creates) this September 5th is World Art Drop Day. Wherever you find yourself that day, drop a piece of your art and tell someone where to find it. The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there's nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving. - Here's how it works: * Draw a picture and hide it somewhere. * Take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both. * Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on any social media of your choice. Be sure to included the hashtag: #artdropday * Then move on, hoping someone finds it. OR hang around and meet your new friend. * You can put a note on their too that says who you are and what Art Drop Day is. Go to artdropday.com for more info and an official sheet to print out and enclose with your art. That's it! I'll be dropping a drawing somewhere in #Provo that day! Hope you try it too! - #artdropday #comics #inktober2017 #makingcomics #drawingoftheday #drawing #sketches #marker #brushpen #inktober #comicart #comicartist #conceptartist #inking #inkdrawing #ink #sketchbook #illustration #artistsoninstagram #artists #drawers #graphicnovel #drawing #begood
