Contest Rules

Art is not what you see but what you make others see
This is a quote from the French artist Edgar Degas, which explains one of the main foundations of all great art, regardless of the medium.

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”

Degas used this to create his amazing work as a sculpture, painter and printmaker.

It does not matter what medium you choose to do this in, it is the ability to open up someone else to the journey of the work you are taking them on and I believe it is what motivates us to continue to create our art.

With this said please submit to this contest what you think exemplifies this quote.

Remember this is not an adult rated group.

Good Luck and I look forward to your submissions!
