Calendar and Info!
projecteducate was founded seven years ago by Moonbeam13 and since then has been a project run by the Community Volunteer team. The group is aimed at providing educational information for artists who want to learn about all sorts of art genres or who want to contribute their own knowledge for others to read about.
Weeks are usually allocated in seven day blocks unless there is a lot to cover and for general weeks a Community Volunteer will take the lead and bring you seven days of awesome in the form of articles, features, chat events, interviews and maybe even a contest or two. The volunteer will share their knowledge about the gallery that they oversee on DeviantArt or if they are a Chat & Forums volunteer they will give you insight into how things work over there. But now we have more and more involvement from the Community and we have themed weeks, which give anyone the chance to participate!
To participate in any of the below Themed Weeks or any of the scheduled Community Volunteer weeks just note projecteducate with your thoughts. We will discuss your ideas with you and help you all the way from the drafting to the final editing and beyond! You just need to note your ideas to the group at least two weeks before the start date and final drafts must be in one week beforehand. Once your idea has been approved, you will be provided with all the guidelines, journal CSS info and anything else that you need. Scroll down for some background info on our themed weeks and the dates for when each week will next be launched!
These are weeks that are opened up to anyone on DeviantArt who has a wish to write about something art focused and educational. All we ask is that the topic hasn't been covered recently and that you be sure to credit any sources that you link. You can find all of the previous Community Week articles in this gallery.
These are weeks which are completely dedicated to the Tools of the Trade! Whether you're a digital artist, traditional, photographer or something else - we want your knowledge about the tools you use to get creative. As long as your article focuses on an Art based tool or an interview discussing tools - or even a feature - then we'd love to hear from you. For previous topics that have been covered during Artists Tools Weeks visit this gallery.
Art History is all about delving into the past to find out who & what has shaped us into the artists that we have become today. If you have a specific forte about a period of Art History then we'd love to hear from you. You can write about art styles, artists, periods of time or something else as long as it's historical and has an educational twist. For previous Art History Weeks visit this gallery.
Art in the Professions
Art in the Professions week is dedicated to bringing education and awareness of the many ways in which art can become a career or play a significant role within a career. Through interviews, personal accounts, advice and guidance, articles during the week aim to give the community a taste of how they might be able to make art their profession whether it be within their career or as a job on the side.
Hints & Tips
These are short and concise blogs that we post through the group when things are quiet. You can work with us to find an empty slot in the schedule for posting these blogs. Hints & Tips blogs need to be brief and if possible include an illustration or photograph for those who prefer visual learning. For information on our previous Hints and Tips blogs, visit this gallery.
So what are you waiting for? With an audience of over 3,500 people on DeviantArt projecteducate is the perfect platform from which to launch your next educational article. Send us a note today!
