The crew at Art Elements decided we need a little art food for the soul. Diana Ptaszynski proposed the initial idea and got us all started:
“Should we do some more mini challenges in here that are just for us, in an attempt to maintain our sanity in all of the craziness? Maybe some sketching mini challenges? Or some little theme challenges or something?”
For our first challenge, we decided to go with a theme color. We chose Red. Some wanted to use this as a complete unplugging from the current political climate. Others wanted to express their feelings about what is going on. I hope you enjoy the results (many are in progress – we only had a week. But honestly I think it’s pretty amazing that everyone pulled off such beautiful work on the spur of the moment with only a few days of time).
By the way, we plan to do a weekly challenge like this. So stay tuned!
As I mentioned, be sure to return next week for our next installment. The theme will be a surprise. 😉
