Some 2015 Artist Date Ideas .

Only three weeks in to 2015, and I am already lapsing in my artists dates. Sigh.
Does posting about artist dates count as an artist date?

What Are Artist Dates?

"The Artist Date is a once-weekly, (minimum of 2 hours), festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly“artistic” — think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the imagination. They spark whimsy. They encourage play. Since art is about the play of ideas, they feed our creative work by replenishing our inner well of images and inspiration. When choosing an Artist Date, it is good to ask yourself, “what sounds fun?” — and then allow yourself to try it."

I posted about my artist dates in 2014. Here are some ideas that I have for 2015 (including some of the artist dates that I didn't get to in 2014):
