The Spirit of the Monthly Challenge

For those of you who are new to our group or who need some encouragement to participate in the challenge, here is a bit of information outlining the purpose and goals. 


The monthly challenge is:


  • An invitation to motivate, inspire and stretch your artistic potential. It may or may not result in a masterpiece that you can hang on your wall, but it will contribute to a lively discussion about your art and how you chose to grapple with the various aspects of the challenge.

  • An exploration of the elements of design and composition, styles and techniques, concepts and themes. 

  • An opportunity for you to explore any or all of the aspects for each Challenge.

  • Your creative response to the Challenge shared in a collaborative discussion held at the second monthly meet up on the fourth Wednesday of each month. 

  • An opportunity for the group to offer feedback to each artist and to encourage a dialogue within the group about the aspects of the challenge so we can learn from each other. 

  • Meant to embody the spirit of the groups' mandate "To support you on your artistic journey and to have fun along the way!"
