Words in Art

Words in Art

Welcome to the Words in Art group!
G E N E R A L R U L E S
- Art sets only (expression, dolls, mini-midi, general art). No fashion or Interior Design, please.
- All Sets submitted should incorporate some sort of text, letters or words.
- Contests will be held regularly. Mostly judged by the moderator so it is just one art lover's opinion and tastes that will dictate contest placements.

The Creative Coalition

The Creative Coalition

Welcome to the Creative Coalition - an art-based group. All contests are no limit, 1 week and must be new sets..unless otherwise directed! :)
 
This is a group for those of us who find solace in creativity. We are creative, open-minded and support one another. No submission will be rejected unless it is hateful or a blatant copy. So, here's a bit about the group in a nutshell...
1. Preferred Submissions: Art sets, including dolls, abstracts, interiors/exteriors, collage, etc. as opposed to strictly editorial fashion sets but as stated above no submission will be rejected.
 
2. Contests will be held - some judged by moderators and some will be up for group vote.
 
3. Kindness and encouragement for everyone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 
If you have any questions please PM me!

Art Doesn't Have To Be Pretty (Art & Design)

Art Doesn't Have To Be Pretty (Art & Design)

The title is a quote by Duane Hanson, and I agree. This group is dedicated to experimental, conceptual, surrealistic, Dada, darkly humorous sets. This is meant to be a complimentary group to the other wonderfully established groups with the same vision. I open this to interior design sets that would be considered experimental, conceptual and unique also. I will have contests once we have enough members to do so, but I would love the contests to be used as inspiration rather than competition. I would also encourage more praise, sharing, and constructive criticism through comments. Let's stretch each other and use this as a place to create unique, striking, shocking and moving pieces of artful sets. If these are the kind of sets you enjoy making then please do join!
