At the time of the first two projects, the Arting Around blog was a private site for sharing photos of the projects in progress, and the people involved were friends, relatives. friends of friends, spouses and partners. Now that the site is public, the projects are open to others.
If you are interested in joining an upcoming project, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although some of the people involved in the first projects are professional artists, you do not need to be a professional artist to join in the fun. The point of doing this is not to create great works of art but to connect to like-minded creative people by collectively making imaginative works.
The basic requirement of all participating artists is to maintain that connection to the other participating artists, and to do that by being active on this blog. All participating artists must agree to 1) stay on schedule and 2) take and post or email photos of the pieces as they work on them.
