With holiday craziness last month, the Art Association Pinterest contest took a short little hiatus. But this month, Erin from artsocial and I are back with what we think will be our most fabulous contest yet!
For all you AA newbies ( wait, that sounded wrong ), here’s how it works– You create a Pinterest board around one work of art ( which we provide ), filled with anything and everything that pops into your mind while gazing at the catalyst piece.
The artwork providing our catalyst this month is Cocktail Party by none other than Artsy Forager’s Featured Artist for January, Christina Baker! Talk about a perfect place to start!
Are you ready to start pinning away and maybe win some art? The art we’re giving away this month is FABULOUS.
Here’s how Art Association works–
Step 1| We give you a piece of artwork, this month’s work is Cocktail Party by Christina Baker ( above ).
Step 2 | You create a Pinterest board titled Art Association, like mine here, where you pin any and all images you associate with the featured artwork ( like word associations, only visual )– here’s a sneak peek at some of my associations
Step 3 | Leave a link to your Art Association pinboard in the Comments section of this post
Step 4 | Follow both art social and Artsy Forager on Pinterest ( if you already are, you’re ahead of the game and doubly awesome )
Here’s what you can win–
Are you ready? You will be entered for a chance to win this original painting by Christina Baker! Christina created this piece, inspired by Artsy Forager ( aww, shucks!! ) specifically for our contest. And it could be YOURS!**
The pinner with the most amazingly fabulous Art Association board ( as judged by me and Erin ) will be chosen on Wednesday, January 23rd at 5pm (mountain standard time). I can’t wait to see what associations you guys make with Christina’s work.
Pinning begins… NOW!!
**So sorry but the contest is open to US residents only.
