projecteducate is a group and all updates from individuals during their weeks listed below will be posted over there! So be sure to join or watch for the full updates! If you want to partake in Community Week by writing an article then just note the group with your ideas!
How it Works
projecteducate started with purely CV run weeks. Those were weeks focusing on a specific art form brought to you by your lovely Community Volunteers. As well as these epic seven days of awesome, we've now introduced two more themes which run on a bi-monthly basis. Those are Community Weeks, which include articles from members of the dA community - and Artist Toolbox Weeks which include a mixture of articles focusing purely on the 'tools' of the trade. If you're interested in either please note projecteducate!

Telling our stories through art featuresIf someone told you that you had to find the 5-7 pieces of art on dA that best represent you, could you do it?Telling our stories through art features2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What do your favorite works of art say about you? Have you ever thought about it?
I'm featuring 7 deviations that blow me away, that I turn to for my own inspiration. Each one tells a story to which I can relate. A piece of my own story is echoed in each image.
What's your story through art? Create a journal with 5-7 of your favorite deviations that best represent you, and link me!
I love rain. I love the way it washes away sorrow and leaves your soul open for the sunlight.
This image reminds me of me because of the feeling of pain, of being hit with a constant barrage of garbage in my life that I don't need or deserve. You can avoid a lot of it, but sometimes it comes up and strikes you on the chin, reminding you to pay your dues.
Beautiful dress, beautiful hair.

Hello there again my blooming flowers!
A few days ago we announced the winners of March's Repeating Contest! Today we put a start to April's Contest!! Are you excited?? Keep reading to see what we will be doing this month!

How does this work?
Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it

I'm afraid not Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.
Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.
Alright! Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness!

"Pearls are Women´s best Friends"
"What is it about Pearls that makes them so mysterious? So exotic?
Pesonally I think it is because they are adornments that are made by the sea...
They are not hard, cold gemstones that have been crushed by the earth for millions of years;
they have been nestled in the soft warmth of an oyster, surrounded by salty and sandy waters.
Diamonds say, "See me sparkle! Look at me I am beautiful."
Pearls say, "I am mysterious, so come closer and figure out why.
I do not flash, there is more to me."
When thinking of pearls, most have visions of the "string of pearls"
a young girl gets as she sets off to university or is given for her wedding day.
Signifying purity and even perhaps virginity.
But the Pearl laughs at this.
Its demure, gossimer glow tells another story all together.
Have you seen pearls in candlelight?
Pearls have remained quiet and relatively uninvasive over time,
but take another glance at history to see the most seduct

Redesign a character contest!If there's something we love about fan art is how artists take artistic liberties and portray characters in their own style and different scenarios we wouldn't see otherwise. Some people will say that fan art is unoriginal, but from experience there's a lot of creativity involved when it comes to depicting your favourite characters in a different light, deviating from the way they were designed by their creators.Redesign a character contest!2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is why, inspired by the Pokedesign Challenge by *CrazyRatty on Tumblr, your friendly neighborhood Fan Art CVs decided to host a fun little contest for you!
How it works:
Pick a character from any fandom you like.
Come up with at least 3 different re-designs for them and put them in a single image.
