Awaken Your Inner Artist and Display Your Creativity

Just as we all have at least one novel simmering at the edge of our fingertips, we also have artistic expression waiting to be unleashed at the end of a paintbrush — or glue bottle or chunk of charcoal. The artsy part of our souls may not be the source of our passion. Or maybe it is and the proverbial worms are pushing at the lid of the can. It could be that art is simply a way to release stress and enjoy down time. 

My mom invited me to a step-by-step art class. I was hesitant to accept. Other than stick figures and the occasional puerile oak tree on a hill with a rainbow, my artistic abilities are nonexistent. At least, that was what I thought. But with a paintbrush in my hand and a few basic instructions, I was able to connect with a creative side I didn't know I possessed. I discovered that not only did spending time with a canvas relax me, it helped replenish the creativity connected to my writing. 

Regardless of the status of your relationship with your inner artist, if you can express yourself on a 7 inch by 7 inch canvas, GreenHill challenges you to submit your work. From now until July 1, you can submit an original piece for an inclusive community art exhibition. Then, from July 7-13, peruse the exhibition in the InFocus Gallery, where entries will be on display during normal GreenHill hours. 

Entries from all ages and abilities will be accepted for this event, so feel free to make it a family endeavor. Or challenge your friends to participate. As long as the works are original and measure 7 square inches, they qualify.  

Want to submit your work? Here's the Call to Artists.
