Artist Keri Smith posts a new creative prompt every day to help foster connection and joy.

Find inspiration right where you are.

"This site is an attempt to bring people closer together during a time of fear and isolation. By participating in the same assignments hopefully we can feel a bit more connected and on a simple level it can give us something else to focus our energy on. There is much joy to be found in the simple, the mundane, and the everyday. We just have to look a bit harder than we have been." - Keri Smith
