A&S Champion of 2016 calls all artists, experienced or starting out, young or old...
This staff can be yours for a whole year!
To become a Champion of Lough Devnaree in this our year 2017, I would like you to demonstrate one of the most important abilities: overcoming a challenge or mastering a new skill.
Please present either one of below projects.
Choose an unfinished or abandoned project that you previously had difficulty with. In your documentation (ideally not longer than 1-2 pages) please explain what the original difficulty was and how you now overcame it. Did you do more research? Or more practice? Did you ask for help? Did you try a different approach than previously?
Or, start a new project that involves a new skill. It can be a new hand for calligraphy, a new embroidery technique, a new rhyming scheme for a poem etc. In your documentation, please explain what new skill you learned for this project, how you did it and what difficulties you encountered and how you overcame them.
Also include how satisfied you are with the project and what, if anything, you would do differently, if you were making something similar again.
Please let me know till 20th of August what A&S entry you are going to submit, so I can get suitable judges. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm very much looking forward to seeing lots of entries.
Yours in service
