How do you feel when you experience joy? How do you know if you feel sad? Have you ever had trouble finding the words for what you’re feeling or thinking? When you just feel – well – you don’t know. We have. Today, we would like you to:
Invent a new feeling and think about how we would experience it. Write a dictionary definition with the made up word, and a description of how it feels.
If you have more time …
Imagine that an alien has just arrived at your door who has never encountered any type of feeling before. Think about how you might explain this new feeling to them. If you could give it a colour what would it be? If it were a person what would it look like? Perhaps you could try making a mask that shows this new feeling.
How did it feel to create a new feeling? Have you ever experienced this feeling before?
Send us a photo of a facial expression that conveys your new feeling. Look to emoticons for inspiration! If you’re sharing on social media don’t forget to tag us #64millionartists or share to our pages:
