2021 February Art Dare


Where do you SEE the Elements of Art in real life? Watch our videos on Value, Texture, Line, and Shape and then take photos of where you see these elements in your everyday life.

This is a PHOTO challenge!  To complete this art dare, you’ll need to shoot at least 4 photos, 1 photo for each Element of Art.

In the Art Prof Discord Server, we have an #art-dares channel where you can post your WIP, and get feedback & support during the month!

After you shoot a photo, manipulate it using digital or traditional media. Adjust the colors and value in Photoshop, draw on your photo in Procreate, print it out and cut it up to create a collage, paint on the photo with acrylic paint, and more!
