Welcome to the 3rd annual Queen City Art Swap! This is the theme that kicked it all off, where you, the artist, decide what you want to create and send to your assigned artist. Create something that really shows you as an artist, or try a new medium you’ve always wanted to tackle. It is up to you! But remember, you want to send something you are proud of, something that you would want to display in your own home. We can’t wait to see what you create!
IN ADDITION to creating a unique and original piece for your assigned artist, you are required to do one more thing: a random act of artistic kindness for someone in your community. Leave a little painting wrapped for someone to find. Take your mother on a surprise date to the art museum. Yarnbomb a friend’s mailbox. Leave love letters tucked in library books. Mail anonymous postcards to someone who needs a smile. The sky is the limit (have access to a sky writer? Send your community a positive message in the clouds! Ha!). I’ve created a place for you to get inspired: https://www.pinterest.com/nikosaur/art-that-gives/
