Welcome to our first challenge of 2022 ...

 Welcome to a brand new year on ARTastic.

 This year we are making some changes to our challenges which I hope you will all enjoy.  During 2022 our inspiration is coming to you from ART ROOMS (aka store window displays). Just bear in mind that these are actual window displays, mostly behind glass, so the images may not be as clear and crisp as our previous artwork images.

How you interpret these arty displays is totally up to you but please let us know what inspired you from our monthly art room – it may be the colours, or the overall style or perhaps there is a specific item you see that you can replicate on your page.  Maybe you like a background pattern or a shape in the display or want to use photos that match the theme.  We’d love to hear what jumped out at you!

And now some inspiration from our team ...

(in no particular order)

Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
I used the red, yellow, blue and black colours in squares and rectangles!
My Grandaughter Skyla and her first pair of school shoes!

Karen Guy (Australia)
I looked at this Window display and just thought Lego, oops no Shoes!

Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
Inspiration - predominantly white, black shapes (squares), primary coloured blue, red and yellow and of course, shoes!

Karen Brierley - (Australia)
I was inspired by the primary colours, squares and the shoes. This was very much a 'play around and see what happens' kind of page!

Jane Howden - (Australia)
I used the colours and the block style to document something to do with the "shoe theme" although perhaps in a slightly different way! This is a blast from my past :)

Our monthly prize winner is selected by random draw - so anyone could be a winner, you just have to be in it to win it!

February prize

We are also thrilled to announce we will be hosting a number of Cyber Crop weekends for you this year.  Each one will have three fun challenges, games and wonderful prizes!  Keep posted for updates!

 Please upload your entries directly to the monthly album in our Facebook public group (ARTastic challenges) by midnight on the last day of the month - please remember we are an Australian based challenge so do check your day and time.  All entries must be new for this challenge and the original work of the entrant.  You may combine entries with a sketch challenge only. 

We hope you might find time to play along with our challenge.
