#projecteducate's third Community Weekis right around the corner. We'll be kicking off September 24th and we need you on board!
What is Community Week?
The majority of Project Educate is run by the CVs. But there's only a few of them and a lot of us—which is why we're asking you, now, to contribute. Know about a specialized art form or technique? Got some advice on becoming well-known for positivity? Want to share your sweet critique skills? We want it all, and we want it now.
In the past, people have contributed in all kinds of ways. The following are just some suggestions to get your thoughts going!
Write a blog:
There are tons of options for a blog. Art features with an explanation of the technique or style showcased; tutorials on creating a certain effect (with examples); critiques and how to critique; interacting; dA for dummies—if you have an idea that will make being on this website a more positive experience, tell us all about it!
Host a chat:
Chats are a great place to hold real time discussions. Answer questions, offer feedback in a group setting; there are a ton of things you can do in chat. If you're not comfortable writing a blog or you want to take advantage of some readily available opinions, this is the way to go.
Hold a contest:
If you have an idea for a contest that has a strong educational element—for instance, introducing people to the rule of thirds by having them take square flower macros—send it in!
Other ideas are also welcome: we can't think of everything! Note #projecteducate with your idea, a short outline of what you're planning to do with it, and your preferred day/time.
