Schedule and Info
projecteducate was founded eight 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. Community Volunteers along with members of the community 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. However, we now also host "PE Weekends" where 1-4 articles are posted from Saturday to Sunday, giving everyone the chance to bring a topic to the attention of the community, in an easier and less time-consuming manner.
The volunteers and community members will share their knowledge about various galleries on DeviantArt, the Chats and Forums communities, or other DeviantArt related educational topics. We now have more and more involvement from the Community and we encourage you to apply to lead a week or PE weekend among many other opportunities that you can find listed and explained here: Project Educate: Open Positions - Apply Now!
To participate in any of the below Themed Weeks or any of the scheduled Community Volunteer weeks just note projecteducate with the information detailed in the link above. We will discuss your ideas with you and help you all the way from the drafting to the final editing and beyond! 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 open to anyone on DeviantArt who wants to write about something art focused and educational. We now offer you the opportunity to lead a Community Week with the mentorship of at least 1 Community Volunteer. This is a great opportunity that we encourage you to seek out if you have interest in organizing a week of educational art content for your peers on DeviantArt. You can find all of the previous Community Week articles in 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. These too, are weeks that have open leadership positions, simply note us for more info! 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. These too, are weeks that have open co-leadership positions in which you can work with Mrs-Durden to organize an amazing array of content!
