Here are some fun ways that you can join The Art Colony's latest activities:
The theme for February is "Stripes"! Create a work of art based on this theme and upload it to the theme thread: http://community.art-is-fun.com/forum/topics/monthly-theme-february-2015
See what others created, too!
Every two weeks a photo will be posted to use as a reference/inspiration for an art piece you create, In Your Style! The Challenges are open to all artists, whatever your medium. We're looking forward to seeing the diversity in art that one photo creates!
