    I really love the pieces that form a narrative – but I’m a sucker for story, so that’s my bias here! But I do think it’s really eye-opening to the creative process to see how many different artist respond even to the same word. It’s a great reminder to me that you as an artist have something to say…even if it’s been said before, it hasn’t been said in your voice!

    Wow!! I can’t wait to see how ideas are developed by the Feb Art Dare participants, and the new ideas created by those just getting started! The possibilities are so endless and exciting!

    There are so many fun angles to take this Art Dare to.This is such a wonderful way to think outside of the box. Sometimes I like to think of the words within these charts as tools, or parts of a sentence, by mixing the words around, you can come up with so many unique ideas to draw from when creating the dare. Cannot wait to see what people come up with!!

    Can’t wait to see these! Everyone’s chart responses were so fun and clever; I’d love to see how some of these artists push their concepts further in a more developed piece.

    We were absolutely thrilled by the innovative responses to the February Art Dare!! People took so many different approaches to their visual interpretations, we thought it would be fun to see how people could develop their ideas further into finished pieces. Lots of flexibility too, you can keep going, start over, or jump in if you didn’t do last month’s Art Dare. We are really looking forward to seeing what happens this month!
