September’s Art Challenge: Circular

Steve Kunin

Like everyone, artists sometime need a little push, an inspiring message, a change of thought patterns. Each month we challenge our members with a central theme to be interpreted artistically in a new work of art.

This month’s theme is CIRCULAR.

By offering a theme, we encourage our members to start a NEW work of art every month, that’s the challenge. Most of the artwork is for sale, please contact Capitol Hill Art League for purchase info.

Our DC neighbor, Hill Center, will pick their ONE favorite art image at the end of every month and award that artist with a $20 gift certificate.

September~Mind of the Artist: Anne Shields

Anne Shields

Every month, CHAW’s website presents a blog called Mind of the Artist and one of our CHAL members submits their own short bio about their artwork along with artwork images. This month, please view Anne Shields here: https://www.chaw.org/blog/chaw-mind-artist-anne-shields

As with many artists, working full time and taking care of family fills up time for creating but once one retires…boom! Artists can spend hours taking art classes, drawing, painting, taking photographs and expressing their creativity without restraints. That was the case with Anne; she even has TWO children’s books available on Amazon!!
