Anything goes as long as it’s in a square
This is such a fun art challenge. Mel Doty, an artist in Charleston, WV, (near my hometown!), loves to paint geometric squares and other colorful things in a square format. Once a year, she hosts Squareathon on Instagram for the art community.
Every day for three weeks, follow along with the prompts. You can use any medium and any substrate. The only requirement is the work must be in a square format. Any size.
The chill part is you make it fit in your life. If you miss a day, that’s okay. Want to start in the middle or just pick a few faves to do? That’s great, too. She’s just happy you’re taking part. Create your work in a square format and post it on Instagram with the #squareathon hashtag.
It’s September 1-21, 2021. I’m going to post here as well in small batches. If you’re on Instagram, find me @thecreativ1 and find Mel @melissadoty.art
I’ve wanted to improve my watercolor skills, so I’m using this challenge to practice new techniques. These aren’t what I consider outstanding works of art because I’m learning. This is practice. But I’m posting, anyway.
I’m taking the chill approach. 😊 Hope you’ll join the fun.
