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!

Art Medium Weeks

We regularly run Art Medium Related weeks and if you feel like you could help out either by co-leading a week or by contributing to one then check out the schedule here to see what's coming up and send us a note with your idea(s)!

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.

Art History Weeks

Art History weeks are all about the history of art! You can pick the topic you want to write about and post it during one of our Art History Weeks, or you could even co-lead an Art History Week! Send us a note if you're interested!

Hi guys,
As most of you probably remember, in November we hosted our 2nd daily challenge here at projecteducate. It was called 30 days of art, and you can find out all about it in this journal.
It was exciting to see that while many participants from August's challenge joined again, we also had many many new participants!
39 people participated in this challenge, submitting around 600 entries, contributing art from a wide variety of mediums: traditional, digital, video, photography, literature, pixel, fractals, crafts, etc 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 39 participants, and 30 challenge days, I cannot feature everyone's entries, that'd make this journal unbearably long. But I do want to highlight some entries!

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 found the entries they submitted to be ones that clearly took some thought and time. Their entry for the theme Ocean is one of my favourite submissions for the entire challenge!

Thank you for the invitation to participate.

I'll need to see what is offered in order to not be repetitive.
