ART FIX Residency Challenge

 Want to go on a residency but can't afford to or don't want to fill out all those tiresome papers? I have the answer for you.

I've been in such an unfocused  art state and big time avoiding the studio, I've decided to take up Kesha Bruce's 2011 In-house ART FIX Residency Challenge.  The residency happens in your own studio and you are encouraged to survey all your collected art materials-even the ones hidden away in the back corners of cupboards- and use them as the inspiration for new works. I can do that!  There's no  themes, no commitments to create earth shattering work, no new expenses for materials.  As a by- product of surveying your materials you will probably have to tidy and organize- not a bad thing. I'm looking forward to the cross pollination that will occur by viewing what others have been up to.

So here's what you have to do if you're interested:

The room seldom visited lately

1. Go into your work area and inventory your art supplies. Dust them off and make a commitment to actually using them.  (Next post)

2. Every week from now until April 14th, 2011, you will post images of what you’ve made on your blog, your website, on Facebook, or on Flickr. Your choice. (on blogger)

3. Report back to Kesha after you’ve published your first post so she can share with everyone who's involved. (See link above)

4. Have fun, fun, fun.

Great idea! And no rejection letters! :)

This will be inspirational for you, I'm sure. Last year I did something similar on a whim, but with no structure and found it to be quite cathartic. Have fun!
