Here are some things to consider when determining what you would like to create on each canvas:

Capture an important moment in time.
Create an illustration of your close group of friends.

Paint a special moment in a memorable game.

Create an illustration of great experience you recall during a trip.

Express an emotion you remember feeling.

Illustrate a quote that holds importance to you..

Draw an important object or place to you.

Favorite candy, drink, restaurant, store, etc.

Design a unique monogram.

Create a unique work of art that represents your artistic voice.

There really are no restrictions on this piece - let your creativity shine.

2. When each mini canvas is complete, carefully assemble the cube by using hot glue on the backside of each canvas; see instructor for these materials.
