Well, I was just sitting here thinking it’s been quite a while since we’ve had a “Creative Group Challenge”. Then I realized I can’t remember how long it’s been since we’ve actually done a challenge… so I went and tried to look up some of our old posts and see how long it has actually been. I couldn’t find an exact date, but I can tell you it’s been well over a year for sure. What?!?
Yep. So it’s definitely about time for some challenge fun!
We have gained lot of new members since our last challenge, so if you’re wondering what this “Creative Group Challenge” is all about, here’s a recap: We’re all artists, we all love creating, designing, crafting, making things. Many of us are jewellery designers, but there are also writers, woodworkers, painters, fiber artists, sculptors and other artists. The basic thought behind a group challenge is: wouldn’t it be fun to make something together? Since we live in different parts of the world, we’ve tried to choose categories that attempt to encompass our diversity but that each member can use to create something from similar starting themes.
The theme for this upcoming challenge is: Fall, Harvest, Halloween and/or Thanksgiving and what it means to you.
Our group contains many members from around the world and many of our members (even in the U.S. & Canada) don’t celebrate Thanksgiving or Halloween but almost all of us enjoy Fall or Harvest times of year. Pick a category and design a piece celebrating your choice or that represents how you feel about it/what it means to you. Jewelry, paintings, sculptures, weaving, fiber arts, even decor…whatever medium and project type you choose!
These categories have been chosen just as a starting point for your creations. (As I’m typing this I think I agreed to make a Harvest table centerpiece this year so I might be entering more than once LOL). You can pick one category or if you like pick more and join in the challenge more than once. Or combine categories if you’d like, let your creativity rise to shape your challenge. With any entries it would be really great to see a narrative with the result, to be able to read how you were inspired and follow your thought process in creating but not necessary.
Every member is welcome to participate, but there’s no pressure. The final due date is set to November 2nd, so there’s plenty of time to join in the fun!!!
Starting now (as of this posting) until November 2nd please upload your project pictures to the album created on our Facebook group photo page (Creative Group Challenge 2018) and after our end date the final results will be uploaded on the blog (only after a member has given permission), so get ready for fun, awesomeness, creative and diverse artwork!
The (soft) Due Date is November 2nd. Depending on how everyone is getting on, this date might be postponed so we’ll all have enough time to finish and show our work. Submitting results can be done to the Creative Group Challenge 2018 photo album on our facebook group page. There will be a blog post showing the different creations as well but before we do so permission to show your work on the blog will be requested. As always we will not show anyone’s work or details without permission, as we care a lot about the safe and casual nature of our group.
