ARE ART CHALLENGES GOING OUT OF FASHION?

Take a Word has been in the art challenge business for over eight years.  Sadly, it seems that challenges aren't as popular as they used to be and numbers are dwindling as valued artists have left to follow other opportunities.  We've been so fortunate to have shared our challenges with talented and generous participants from all forms of art - stamping, card-making, crafts, mixed media and digital art.  Our aim has always been to provide a place for artists to publish their work and make connections with like-minded people.  Now we would appreciate your comments on the future of challenges and also your ideas as to improvements that could be made to attract new artists and to persuade our loyal participants to stay. We are always grateful for theme suggestions.

My email address is on the right-hand side bar of the Take a Word web page.  I look forward to hearing from you.

The theme this week is ARCHITECTURE.  Doors, windows, houses large or small, old buildings ....... anything goes.  Have fun.
(The picture is of my Uncle Paul (by marriage) and my Aunt Julia.  For those of you who have known me for a long time, you may remember me using Paul's image, sometimes outrageously, in my artwork).
