Introduction, Instructions, and Challenge #1

I have been wanting to start an art challenge for a long time and with this being the beginning of a new year I thought this would be the perfect time to do so. 

The premise behind the challenges will be that at the end of each challenge everyone's artwork will fit together as a mosaic, hence the challenge name Mosaic Medley, heh. 

Here's how it goes...
  1. Challenges are open to all regardless of skill level.
  2. Artwork is to be done at 4"x4".
  3. Each challenge will have a new theme which the artwork should follow. 
  4. Artwork can be done in any drawing or painting medium (no digital art or photography please).
  5. Three weeks will be allotted for each challenge.
  6. Challenges will start on a Friday and be due by midnight Thursday.
  7. Final artwork should be a jpeg with the size being no less than 400x400 pixels and no greater than 1000x1000 pixels.
  8. Send finished artwork with subject line reading "Challenge #_" to: mosaicmedley @ comcast.net. In the body state the artist's name, the medium used, and a link to your website or blog (if applicable). Make sure your image is being sent as an email attachment and is not embedded in the email body.  
  9. You may submit up to 4 pieces for each challenge.
Once I receive your submission I will post it to the blog and at the end of the three weeks I'll post the resulting mosaic!

I think that's it! So let's start shall we?

Challenge #1
January 14 - February 10

Theme: Snow

Given the past week of weather we've had, I figure "snow" is not only a very appropriate theme, but also one for which there is currently plenty of reference material.


  1. Great idea! I'm going to try and get one in before the 10th!

  2. Excellent Sam! I can't wait to see what you do! Pass the work along, this is open to anyone who'd like to participate!

  3. I found you over and Angela's. I have never done this but maybe this is just the thing I should do to get me off my duff with my art. I'll see what I can come up with.



  4. Great Jo! I look forward to your submission! :)
