Finding Artistic Inspiration and Stimulation
We have all spent hours studying works by old and modern masters seeking ideas for color, style, content, perspective, and composition. We would like to present a different selection of art to view; to use as a departure point from which to create an original piece of art.
“Outsider Art” has a certain feeling of spontaneity and innocence , a childlike quality. There is an abandonment of the rules of perspective, composition, and juxtaposition that leads to a freshness.
“…being an artist means getting back in touch with how we once saw the world as a child. We need to see the world with a child’s awareness and curiosity.” Don Scott
Each week, G.R.A.C.E. will post a piece of art from their collection. We encourage you to use it as inspiration and a departure point for your own original creation. We will post the prompt here, as well as a community gallery of the work that our community artists create.
Prompts will be available on Mondays, with responses due by Sunday Evenings. The first prompt will be available Monday November 30th, and we will ask for all responses to be submitted by Sunday December 6th for inclusion in the online gallery.
