How exciting it has been to see all the participation in our Healing Art Challenges.. as well the anticipation for the Gallery show each week and all of the connections being made in the Friends in Healing chatroom as well through the expressive arts. I'm just jumping out of my cowgirlboots with joy to announce the first challenge in a series that is inspired by well known Christmas carols. This week we will be reinterpreting "Silent Night." So grab cameras, colored, pencils, computer keyboard.. whatever your artistic tool is and get busy. Remember that pieces can be as literal or abstract, personal or general... it's all up to you! And feel free to open up the idea of what art really is... cook, garden, construct.. whatever speaks to the theme in your way.
Please send your pieces to friendsinhealing at gmail.com no later than Thursday, December 2, 12 :00 pm CST time. Please write "Healing Art Challenge: Silent Night" in the subject line. Happy creating!
And if you can see this ittty bittty font.. I'm giving you a heads up this month. The other challenges will be based on the songs "Oh Christmas Tree," "We Three Kings" and "Angels We Have Heard on High." :)
And here's an extra little inspiration for you this week... Enjoy!
