December is Art History Artisan Crafts month :party:


:bulletpink: Here are some hints n tips about submitting.....
    :bulletpink: Create the News Article as you normally would in your own Journal portal. N.B If you create this as a 'Journal' rather than 'News', when you submit it to the Group it will show up in the Gallery, rather than the Blog. :bulletpink: Choose to submit to Groups at the last page, after formatting and select ArtHistoryProject. You may also submit to any Group you Admin for, providing it is relevant. In fact I would encourage this as it will spread the Project further - many people will be yet to hear about it. e.g. I submit my Pinup & Glamour stuff to my Death-Chicks Group, as it fits the theme.

    :bulletpink: It doesn't matter what Art you usually create. You can get involved with any area. This is about what YOU can contribute. You are not stepping on anyone’s toes by picking a subject that other artists major in; there is nothing to force them to take part, so the community might miss out on that area all together if you don’t step up!

    :bulletpink: You may use the AH CSS Skin if you wish, but most have been using the CR one. It's up to you. :bulletpink: You may double up on days if needed :aww: :bulletpink: CHAT is all Year round - you do not need to wait to be asked to host Chat events :D

Are there any sorts of qualifications required for writing an article? What sort of information should be included in articles?

I can do something about quilting - Since it's about art history I can write something about how it used to be done and perhaps something about how patterns were named etc so "the history of patchwork and quilting" would be the theme - I'd prefer a date after Christmas so I have enough time to check my facts and write it :) and looking at the resources gallery I see that there are barely any quilt tutorials so I think I'll change that pretty soon too :)

*squints in diary*

I can make a nice feature of quilts for the 29th and the quilt history article on the 30th if that's ok?

The tutorials will happen as soon as I have some time :)

Any date is fine. If anything, I'd probably prefer one after the 12th as I have a blog series to write from the 1st to the 12th, but I am happy to go with whatever suits. :]

Just popped back and saw a lot of empty slots. Not sure if you've got people lined up for it or not, so if you're having trouble filling slots I can do another day later in the month (perhaps something on cross-stitch/embroidery?)

Hi there!

Thanks for the clarification on how to submit, I haven't really used DA a lot so far...

I'd really like to contribute to this, but it's difficult to make my mind up on which craft. I was thinking of something about textile (embroidery/tapestry/lace-making) or maybe jewelry or forged iron. They're all crafts I like, rather than the ones I usually practice. Maybe you can help me choosing?

These all sound interesting - whatever you think you could cover the most for :)

Hm.. I've been reading a bit and I guess I'll take jewelery.

Regarding the date, I don't mind really, as I will have it ready by early next week, so maybe early December?

Hello! I've got the thing ready now, so any day you have uncovered.

I'm not sure if the text is what you're expecting. As I wasn't feeling confident describing technical aspects, I went for the social/cultural dimension of jewellery. Hope you'll find this interesting enough

Well, this will be my first submission to a group and I'm very excited about it. I just hope I won't make a mess ^^กก

Hi! I really like this idea, but I need to get some things cleared. I am thinking about writing article on temari, it is not very known, so many people could find out about it for the first time. My question is, on the date I select, I just post it as any other text and submit it to your group in some artisan crafts folder or so? Or can I submit it at any time? I am somewhat confused. :)

:icondistortedsmile:
DistortedSmile Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
You would submit it as you do a news article - you need to be added as a contributor to the group and you put the new article through the blog :)

And the subject sounds great!

I'll take 14th! :) Plus a question, can I add some thumbnail photos from temari group or is it taken as some sort of advertisment?

Someone is in for the 14th, how about the 16th? And yes that's great!

Or should I posted it as a blog entry directly in AH too?

DistortedSmile Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
That's fine, but you just need to edit with Stash and select the option to submit to the AH blog too - it should be where the journal portal stuff is :)
