Artist Date 2: Visit a Cemetery

Artist date idea #2 … take your sketchbook and/or camera to a local cemetery and notice details. Here’s a section of weekly artist date ideas for jumpstarting creativity. Get out of the house. Play. Do something fun and different from your usual routine. Do it weekly. Check back weekly for more ideas. Add your own, too!


Here’s Artist Date Idea #2

  • Spend a couple of hours in a cemetery in your community.
  • Take a camera or sketchbook.
  • Pay attention to the details: memorials, carvings, names, families, cultures, and the landscaping.
  • It’s not a morbid activity. Hanging out in (especially) a historic cemetery, can actually be lovely and peaceful.
