Southwestern/Western Art Monthly Challenge Schedule

Hello friends,

This is a thread where we encourage you to volunteer to host a Monthly Challenge for our Southwestern/Western Art forum. What's involved in hosting? Here's a quick explanation:

As host of a Monthly Challenge, you are to collect a variety of images, whether they are your own or in the WetCanvas Reference Image Library, and put them into a new thread for the monthly challenge. If the photos are not your own, please be sure to give credit to the members who posted the photos. Five to ten reference photos is ideal for a Monthly Challenge.

As far as what sort of subjects are appropriate, it can be anything from horses and cattle, to southwest wildlife, to southwest birds, to barns\buildings, to flowers and plants, to trees, to landscapes, to cowboys, to Native Americans, to tack such as saddles, bridles, etc, to farm equipment and tools, to ranches, and almost anything in between, just as long as it fits into the Southwestern\Western theme.

A few notes on posting a Monthly Challenge. When creating your thread, please mention that the thread is open to everyone, and that all media and skill levels are welcome. Mention also that kind, gentle comments are welcome, but harsh critique should not be given unless requested by the artist. As the host, it is great if you can comment on everyone's work and offer encouragement throughout the month. When you host a Monthly Challenge, you don't have to feel obligated to create and post artworks yourself, but if you'd like to, feel free to dive in! Once you've posted your Challenge thread, I will make it a Sticky for you. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me (jennaboo88).

Here's our hosting schedule. I'll edit this post and add names as people volunteer. You can just mention in this thread if you're interested in hosting a month. Thank you in advance for helping out!

I'll sign up for August. We should be in NM and I should find more old SW stuff.

2018 Schedule


January: Jo Castillo
February: KeativeK
March: slyfox75
April: jennaboo88
May: SunFace
June:
July: KreativeK
August: Jo Castillo
September:
October:
November:
December:

How about if I volunteer to take two months? I'm new and haven't ever done one before plus I'm home most of the time. I'll do October and November if they're still open---and on your list, it looks like they are. If you want to add the September and December ones to me, I'd do those, too, if you get into a pinch and have nobody to do them. The only month I can't do is June because I'm going to be in Oregon for that month for my great-grand-daughter's first birthday.

Truly, I don't mind at all. Any excuse to be busy and doing something on WC is great with me. I'm home all day every day. Once every three months I go out to the doctor and maybe sometimes out for a day to urban sketch but I haven't even been out for that in a long time.

You're very welcome.

I've just about finished doing this month's challenge in this forum so maybe tomorrow I can finish and get it posted.

Hi Ellen. Thanks so much for your truly generous offer! We'll be thrilled to let you have two months! I look forward to seeing your photos! I'll sign you up for October and November and will keep your offer to do more months in mind if we don't get more volunteers. Thanks again for your help!

Re: Southwestern/Western Art Monthly Challenge Schedule

Is anyone doing June? Or are we doing a group effort again? Inquiring minds want to know.

Kay, since we're short of time, I simply put my name in for June. I'll be posting the challenge shortly.
