The Art on Text Swap
2-for-2 Swap (direct mail to partners)
Skill level: 1 - Sprouting
Hostess: Cathy Calamas
Sign-up by May 18th
Partners announced May 19th
Mail out by June 8th
You will be creating 2 different 5”x7” art pieces on mat board, chip board, or canvas board with a sheet of text from a book or newspaper as your background. Paint, draw, stamp or photocopy an image directly onto the text page and then embellish away with watercolors, markers, paint, etc.
Inspiration board here.
Mail out deadline is June 8th. If you will be late, please let your partners know. Remember you will be mailing directly to your randomly drawn partners so you may want to keep your embellishments flat to keep your mailing costs low, especially if you have an international partner(s).
Skill Level: 1) SPROUTING - Geared toward the artist who has recently begun their journey into mixed media, these swaps are open to all group members, regardless of experience. Participation is the key - caring and sharing in the spirit of friendship and fun. Every artist needs to understand that contributors to these projects can be of any level of artistic experience.
