Theme Challenge: The Cat’s Meow

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

The June/July challenge is “The Cat’s Meow.” Use the photo of a cat peering out of a dark opening as your inspiration and a creative launching point to create your own unique interpretation. You can download your own copy from Pixabay.com.

Use the mystery of the image as your inspiration. What is holding the cat’s gaze? What is the cat inside of?

Grab your paints, pencils, writing pad or other creative implements and make something inspired by the cat’s intense stare or its focused eyes. Use the mood of the photo to create something unique. 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 Cat’s Meow will be presented at the July meeting.
