Creative Thinking with Circles
This creative thinking drawing challenge will help you develop fluency and flexibility. When you complete the activity, all the circles on the page will be transformed or changed into something else. As you complete each transformation, give it an abstract name.
Do you know the difference between a concrete noun and an abstract noun?
Concrete nouns name something you can touch - a person, animal, place, or thing.
Abstract nouns name a feeling or concept you cannot touch, such as happiness or education.
