I’m not an artist, can I still participate?
Participation is open to anyone! Children, elders, parents, lawyers, artists, teachers, managers, engineers, business people — anyone!
Do I need to make a piece every day?
You don’t have to complete a piece everyday. You need only to do hands-on work on your project everyday if you’re doing the Community 100DayProject. Be sure to track what you’re working on each day so you can see your progress. A journal works great for that, so does photographing your progress.
If you’re participating in the Solstice Project, do something hands on with your project each week during the 13 weeks.
How much time do I need to spend each day on my project?
That’s up to you! Even 10 minutes a day of hands-on counts.
