Welcome to ProjectEducate!

Welcome to Project Educate on DeviantArt!

Project Educate (lovingly referred to as "PE") was launched in 2008 to promote and support artistic and community growth and knowledge throughout DeviantArt.

PE is a joint venture between DA Community Relations (communityrelations) and the community. During each themed week, the project brings you a new set of articles with information, tips, and tricks about one of the many galleries on DeviantArt. We also regularly host a Community Week where anyone in the community has a chance to submit an article to share!

We pride ourselves on being a fun and educational group, and we are happy that you have chosen to join us on this adventure. :heart: Happy deviating!

Read on to learn more about the different weeks we host!

Community Weeks

Community Weeks are designed to get the Community involved in Project Educate. We want YOUR articles, whatever the topic, as long as the focus is educational. We also want YOUR leadership, you could apply to lead a Community Week for us! Find out more, here.

Countdown to 31 days of art: an all-mediums challenge!

Countdown ended
Monday, August 30th @ 11:00pm

The deadline has passed!
Hi guys,
As most of you probably remember, in August we hosted a daily challenge here at @projecteducate. It was called 31 days of art, and you can find out all about it in this journal.
Well, the challenge did extremely well. I was genuinely afraid we'd get close to no participation, but wow was I surprised!

40 deviants participated in the challenge! The majority of these 40 people participated very frequently, if not every single day. Indeed several people made 31 entries! There were so many entries, I stopped counting when I started to get close to 600. We had a huge variety of art mediums: literature, photography, videography, gifs, traditional art, digital art, artisan crafts, etc.

I want to thank all participants for making this challenge so fun to host. I loved logging in to see everyone's daily entries. You guys have beautifully creative minds and are inspiring artists.
Before I announce the winners of each prize, I'd like to take the time to highlight a few participants and their entries.

Challenge highlights

As you can imagine, since there were 40 participants, and 31 challenge days, I cannot feature everyone's entries, that'd make this journal unbearably long. But I do want to highlight some entries! If you want to see more, all participants in the challenge are listed/linked in the winners section of this journal :)
Cold Sun
It was always a pleasure to see @BlackCloverCreations' entries, and for some reason I particularly enjoyed this entry for the theme "weather"
Sweet Temptation
I was highly amused by @Pixlhaufen's entry for the theme "temptation"
@Mouselemur found ways to make each prompt work with small figurines - this one I thought was pretty darn awesome
20210810 - Inside
I really liked this trippy and futuristic photo for the theme "inside" - who know a dryer could look so cool ;)
Toast and egg
I really enjoyed the amount of detail in @Subhojit2du's entry for the "breakfast" theme
I found @psto1464's entry for the "water" theme pretty darn unique!
Fierce little fox
I love foxes, so @MeinFragezeichen's entry for the theme "fierce" really stood out to me :)
Cutest Little Murder Machine
This entry for the theme "fierce" is probably one of my favs of the entire challenge :XD:
31 Days of Art - #26 Hidden
All entries from @Ejderha-Arts were great, but I found this entry for the theme "hidden" especially cute :3
I found @TheKikkaKibaz's entry for the theme "galaxy" so beautiful to look at!
I found this entry for the theme "routine" quite amusing ;)
Words that Kiss Day 22: Garden
Every day I wondered what today's mouth would look like, and what it would say. @MysticSparkleWings certainly kept things interesting!

Ok I gotta stop otherwise I'll keep going forever, I couldn't include everyone in the highlights, but please know I adored ALL of your entries :love:


The Winners

Here are the winner categories, and who was competing in each section!
:star: Please note that although it was rare, a couple of times I could not accept an entry, because it was posted on the wrong day (later in time).
A random person who submitted an entry for 26 to 31 days will receive a one-year core+ membership OR the equivalent in points
Winner: @Phodorizi
A random person who submitted an entry for 16 to 25 days will receive 3,000 points
A random person who submitted an entry for 6 to 15 days will receive 1 month core+ and 500 points
Winner: @Lotus105
A random person who submitted an entry for 1 to 5 days will receive 250 points
Winner: @psto1464
:star: Please keep in mind that I'm not the one to fulfil the prizing, I send off the information and it can take a few weeks for prizes to be given out. Be patient please! :heart:

The winner of $20

As you might remember, to incentivise everyone to focus on quality as much as quantity, I said I'd be offering $20 via PayPal to a participant who submitted consistently high-quality entries!
The person I chose for this is...
I really just was in love every day when I saw one of those mouth entries, so much thought and creativity went into them, and the execution was always stellar!
Words that Kiss Day 27: Reptiles
Words that Kiss Day 20: Weather
Words that Kiss Day 11: Atmosphere
Words that Kiss Day 14: The Future
Words that Kiss Day 30: Netflix
Words that Kiss Day 6: Astrology

Congratulations and thank you again to everyone!

I think we'll be doing another daily challenge for the month of November, with lots of surprises in how it's going to work :eager: (days that win you double points, for example!)
Much love,

Hi everyone, I tried looking through the MANY pages of journals to see if there has been one made on painting on fabric, im trying to figure out how I can paint my own cloak for a medieval fair and there are no good tutorials online for what type of fabric and paint I should use. So maybe there has been an article written on it, or someone passing by this will know and throw me some reference links, pls and ty :)

Thank you very much for the invitation, but I had to decline it. I'm super overloaded with work so can't participate in challanges. It's a really good idea though :3
