One word can conjure up a thousand different ideas for us. This week I want you to use just the word “broken” as a prompt for your work. Stop and think about the word. Turn it around. Look at the opposite side.

These activities are as much of the creative process as technically and physically creating the art. It’s about how you THINK, not how you draw or shoot or mouse that makes a great artist. And like every thought, you can easily get better at it by thinking about it!


  • Work must be inspired by the word “broken”
  • The theme may not be obvious to viewers. It doesn’t have to be, and probably shouldn’t be!
  • Work can be in any medium, poem, photo, song, etc
  • The final presentation must have attention to visual display.
