See what others created, too!http://theartcolony.ning.com/forum/categories/monthly-theme-forum/listForCategory
Every month 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!
Style Challenges are always open and you can post your art in them at any time.
