Shaun McNiff thinks anyone can be playful with art. For example, try writing graffiti: “There is a sense of expressive delight and a shattering of convention when we magnify and exaggerate our habitual repertoire of handwriting gestures.” Scribble words, phrases, and random marks all over the surface of a large sheet of paper. Experiment with words that hold positive and negative energies for you. Let your marks be bigger and bolder every time you do this exercise.
