This months challenge comes at the suggestion of Karen MacDonald. We started getting a few suggestions from people, but she was the first. It sounds like a hard one to me. We'll try to get this artwork done by one month from today, which happens to be Christmas! So you get extra credit if you give your artwork away to someone as a gift.
Last month was awesome! I'm so proud of all of you. If you're still working, don't worry, we'll get it posted whenever you're done!
Keep up the good work!

Last month we encouraged people to paint with paints, and we all saw how that turned out. So for this subject, feel free to use whatever medium you want. Paint, draw, photograph, paper cut-out, sock puppet...work in something your comfortable with, or challenge yourself with something new! Carve a log with a chainsaw! Personally, I think I want to sculp something.
The subject for this month is "Safari" and we'll try to have it done November 9th.
Thank you, everyone, for participating! It was great to see everyone's pictures, and to be motivated to do more art. I was really impressed by everyone's creativity. If you're still finishing something up and you want to share, send it in anytime! Don't worry, there's no failing grades or late fees or anything.
Anyway, I had a lot of fun. Let's do it again!

The first painting is in! Horray! She was actually done September 21st, I think probably before I even started mine. For those of you who don't know, Karen is Jessica's grandma, a talented artist, and a delightful person.
So, you know the deal, we're all motivating eachother to do more art. We thought the best way to share and organize this would be a blog, so here it is!
Here's the original email:

So, Jessica and Gram and I were talking about how we wanted to paint more. We decided that we were going to choose a subject for us all to paint, and give ourselves a timeframe to finish it, that way we could help motivate eachother. Anyway, no pressure, but we thought some of you might be interested in doing this, too! If it sounds like fun, then keep reading. Here's the deal:
The painting can be any size, any material, any style. You can do it digitally but we highly recommend getting your smock dirty instead. The deadline is one month from nowish, we'll say October 5th. We'll do our best to complete the painting just so we can have closure. At the end of it we can all share what we worked on with eachother. And if it's successful, we can do more!
All skill levels are welcome! There's no reason to feel embarassed or intimidated, it's all for fun and practice. So let's paint!
