States of BeingTheme Challenge: States of Being

Join us at the May Monthly meeting of  Arts Alliance of Stratford meet and network with other local creative people.

The April/May challenge is “States of Being.” Use the photo showing the morning mist on a pond, included in this announcement, as a creative launching point to create your own unique interpretation. You can download your own copy from Pixabay.com.

The photo shows water in two of its states, liquid and gas. This can be a metaphor for transformation and change.

Grab your paints, pencils, writing pad or other creative implements and make something inspired by the morning mist on the water. Use the mood of the photo to create something unique, or even reveal what’s hidden behind the mist. Follow your imagination where it takes you.

The challenge is open to visual art, writing, poetry, music or performance.

Each month the challenge theme is announced at the end of the monthly meeting. The finished States of Being pieces will be presented at the May meeting.
