THE CONCEPT

The Art Olympics is series of 12 projects over 12 months designed to inspire you to try new things, to get out of your comfort zone, to make stuff you haven't made before. 

New projects launch on the first of the month. You've then got four weeks to experiment, play, make mistakes and make progress. The idea is to create a finished piece every month, but if you'd rather just tinker, that's okay too. Each project has a dedicated page with information about the form, possibilities and examples. Every month, there'll be interviews with creatives who work in that field, as well as inspiration, exercises and ideas. 

The Art Olympics isn't a competition. You don't have to do every month. You don't have to show anyone what you've made. It's about breaking your own creative habits if you have them, and making new ones if you don't. It's about finally trying that thing you've always wanted to try. It's about doing what you've always been scared to. And most of all, it's about having fun. 

WHO'S BEHIND THIS?

The Art Olympics is created by Sarah Walker, a photographer from Melbourne, Australia. Her work can be found at sarahwalkerphotos.com. She regularly comes out of art galleries thinking 'Gosh, I wish I could paint/draw/sculpt/make strange abstract video art'. This year, she's going to.
