Having announced the concept for the overall theme for 2010, in the last post. January 2010’s theme is:
Great I hear you say, but now what? Well for those of you who would like a few ideas to get you started, here are some colours, products and techniques to help you choose, where you could go with this month’s theme. Feel free to use your own ideas for the letter A.
- Alcohol Inks
- Acrylic Paints
- Acrylic; this could be as a surface to paint on or to create a 3d project with.
- Altered Art: Don’t be afraid of the title, this simply means taking an object and altering it, recovering it in pretty paper, ink, paint that sort of thing
- Art Journal; Always wanted to start one of these? This could be the perfect time to start
- ATC; Artist Trading Card, 2.5 x 3.5″ card, decorated to your chosen theme.
The most important thing about this challenge is that you have fun and explore. Don’t feel pressured to have a finished item at the end of the month. Explore different styles and techniques either in person, if you have the suppliers or through research, looking online. You learn so much more when you take away the rules and just PLAY.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
