Painting Together - A Creativity Course for Couples

I have a quick project for couples only. It's ideal for Valentine's Day so I thought I'd share it with you in case you're feeling inspired to celebrate in a different way than you did last year. Here are the materials you will need:

  • 1 Moleskine Journal

  • 1 set of art markers

  • or 1 set of colored pencils

  • Creativity

The beauty of this particular project is that it can be done anywhere, and it's a cute keepsake. The object of this project is to create your love story. The particular details of your love story are totally up to you. It can begin with a simple question that you write in vivid, bold and creative lettering on one of the pages in the journal. Then, as soon as the question is written, have your partner answer by drawing in pictures and words that express ideas and feelings. As one person draws shapes, the other partner colors inside the lines (or outside the lines if you prefer). If you don't want to start with a question, begin with a statement, quote or expression. Terms of endearment work well too.

This is one of those collaborative projects. There are no other rules except to have fun. The journal can be tucked away for next Valentine's Day; or packed in a suitcase to remind your spouse of what's waiting at home at the end of a long business trip.

Have fun and be creative,


p.s. You can also do this with your kids. It's a good way to remind your children how much you love them. Even teenagers like to color!
