It's after Thanksgiving! That means it's almost time for #CarveDecember! 🎉
WHAT: Every day in December we carve a stamp and post it online.
WHO: Everyone is welcome to join. New stamp carvers will develop their skills quickly and experienced stamp carvers will sharpen those skills. Everyone will connect with new friends!
NEW: You've asked and so I've answered. Here is a list of 31 prompts which you are welcome to use to help shape your daily carving. If you're not a prompt person, don't feel obligated to use the list.
HOW: Post a photo of the stamp you've carved to your instagram account. Use the hashtag #CarveDecember so that everyone in the group can find what you've done. In my experience, the #CarveDecember crew is warm and generous.
Let me know if you have any questions! And feel free to repost this image!

Kick in the creatives: 2 challenges
Introducing our new challenge ‘Kick Collage’. We are challenging you to experiment with collage in your work every day throughout November. You can complete the entire piece of art using images you’ve cut or torn out or using elements you’ve found. Alternatively, you could create a drawing or painting over your collaged elements.
When creating a piece of art using collage, you will find that tone is far more important than colour. Collage is a fun way of learning to understand just how important the contrast between your darks and lights really is in a piece of art.
Quick Kick November
#QuickKickNovember“Quick Kicks” are our monthly creative challenges that you can complete in 15 minutes or less per day.
For ‘Quick Kick November’ we are challenging you to draw with a brush and ink (or paint if you don’t have ink) WITHOUT using a pen or pencil first, every day throughout the month of November. By getting straight in there with a brush, you can simplify your drawings and experiment with creating different marks to add interest and texture to your work.
You can draw anything you like, but we will also supply optional prompts for you to use if you prefer. (see above for prompts)

We do have a few specific requirements for artwork being brought to the show.
Please ensure that all 2-D artwork:
1. will fit into a 24-inch x 24-inch wall space.

Piedmont College will not hang any artwork that requires the use of anything besides simple pins.
Please ensure that all 3-D artwork:

2. The artwork has a solid base and is not at risk of falling over.
