We’re super excited to have Dina here at Ranger this week to launch her new #ShowUsYourMEdia monthly art challenge! Keep reading below to hear from Dina more about the challenge, participation, and what this challenge means to her!
Are you ready to go on a personal art journey with me?
I started keeping a journal in 1979. My first entry was the day of my grandmother’s funeral. I wrote it in pencil, and later my dad told me I should write in pen, so my thoughts would have more permanence. That day was the start of my life-long belief in journaling, in writing yourself down, in making your mark on the world.
When I discovered mixed-media and art journaling in 2004, it was a natural fit. I love art. I love journaling. The marriage of those things is pure joy.
I want to put the “me” back in mixed media. All art is personal, whether it be a card or an art journal page or a painting. Join me as we begin a series of monthly challenges and prompts that will fuel your creative spirit and help you delve into the ME of MEdia.
Our FIRST challenge starts today!
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. ~Aristotle
Create a piece of art that shares with us your “why.” Why do you create? What compels you?
To launch our new challenge series, we invited a group of artists to do our first challenge and to inspire you to join us! Let me introduce you to this talented group!
