Street Art: Yarn Bombing

7 Points

Not all street art is created by professional or commissioned artists. We can all use art to create beautiful communities.

For example, check out this 104-year-old street artist who yarn bombed her town and learn more about how yarn-bombing grew into a worldwide movement. Watch the TED talk here.

Think about your own interests, skills, and passions and design an art project you could share with your neighborhood or city. Maybe you’re a dancer or a musician who can perform in public spaces. Maybe you love biology, and could use chalk to illustrate the inner workings of plants in the park. Maybe you love thrift shopping and could decorate the windows of your favorite thrift shop. Anything goes!

To earn points, share an idea you have for your own original street art project based on your interests.
