  1. Hi,
    The first I heard about TASK was this fall in my School Arts magazine. I was really intrigued, and wanted to host a TASK event. The next thing I knew my local Museum and Art Center director was calling me to ask if I’d conduct an activity for the museum in November. I suggested a TASK event and the director thought it would be great. So…I made a TASK box, and got my photo taken with it for some publicity. The TASK box is currently on display at the Sequim, Washington Museum and Art Center, but I’ll be picking it up tomorrow, because the party is on Saturday, Nov. 19th. This week I’ve been gathering supplies. In fact I’m kind of excited, because I’ve realized that all of the art stuff I’ve been stashing in my garage for several years might actually get used up! I’ll let you know how the event goes!

    • Hi Frances, that’s great. Cant’ wait to hear how it went. Please send some pictures. Thanks, Oliver

  2. Hi Oliver, The TASK party I facilitated for elementary aged kids was a lot of fun. However when they saw the materials, they didn’t want to write tasks for others, but for themselves. So I went with the flow. I did have one girl out of twenty that enjoyed pulling tasks out of the box. In any event….the kids had a blast and really made a lot of creative things. There was a lot of collaboration between participants too. The photo link I’m including shows the initial set up and a few of the things that were created. I took a lot more photos than I posted on Facebook. I generally try not to post photos with kids faces for privacy reasons.

  3. Oops! Forgot to include the link to the photos..
