Art Tag Rounds
Art Tag is a way to explore new topics, break through artist block, try new ways of art-making, and be inspired by other artists -- all within a selected theme and sharing process. The rules are simple: you must be a current NCWCA member, commit to making three new works of art within the three-month Art Tag cycle, exchange the first two works with your partner, and come to the meeting at the end to discuss your inspiration and creative process. For examples of works created in past Art Tags, click here.
Saturday Group: Round begins May 17 and ends September 13. Theme is "Thresholds."
Sunday Group: Round begins May 18 and ends September 14. Theme is "Fauve Intimiste."
Peninsula Group: Feb 10 - May 29. Theme is "Beauty and Decay."
National Group: Jul 25 - Oct
National Art Tag Round: Texture
Arising from the Portland Visioning Session, we have started a national Art Tag round. The players are Sherri Cornett (Billings, MT), Kelly Hammargren (Berkeley), Priscilla Otani (San Francisco), Amanda Rogers (Detroit) and Sondra Schwetman (Arcata). This is a trial round, lasting from July 25 - October 19. If it works, we will expand this national version in the future.
