Tag is a collaborative art game where players take turns painting, drawing, and collaging while they create an original piece of abstract art. TAG is played with cards, dice, art supplies, and a color wheel. Plays are made by following a series of card prompts. The game ends when a "finished?" card is drawn and all players agree the artwork is done.
TAG levels the playing field because it was designed for artists and non-artists alike. TAG's cards give enough instruction to get players over the hurtle of facing a blank piece of paper yet the rules are open ended enough to allow for creative expression. Easy to execute marks and a limited color palette create aesthetically pleasing results, so that all players, regardless of age or experience, will have a rewarding experience.
Who Can Play?
TAG is fun for players of all ages and any number of people can play. It can be played alone, in small intimate groups, at parties, or at events as a community art project. For events we like to set up a canvas on an easel with big brushes and acrylic paints. Event and party goers are invited to contribute at their leisure and the finished piece can then be presented to the guest of honor! You are sure to come up with your own TAG applications.
