Art with written characters.

Use written characters—like Chinese characters, letters from the alphabet, or numbers—in your artwork.  The drawing can be all written characters, or combined with some usual subjects.

Map art.

Make a map of a place you choose, from a local neighborhood you know to a whole country or the world.  This is not just a usual map, but a map that is also art, so enjoy designing and making your art-map.

The investigator’s art.

The picture of opposites.

Let’s express the subject of opposites in a picture, like hot and cold, day and night, up and down, hard and soft, smooth and rough, and the like.

A picture set.
