By Ritika Tiwari Monday, March 20, 2017 Art, AtoZChallenge
Today we begin another attempt by yours truly to complete a challenge. Every time I tried to take up a challenge on this blog, I have fai...
But I am still taking up the AtoZChallenge this year. Why? Because as Beyonce once said, “I’mma keep running coz winners don’t quit on themselves.”
What is the AtoZChallenge?
In AtoZ challenge, I will blog all through April (26 times to be exact, if you remove the Sundays). Every blog post that I do will be ordered from A to Z. So the first post will start with A, second with B, and so on.
Why a theme to the challenge?
Just writing a blog post inspired by alphabets, is boring to be honest. It also means that I will have writer’s block almost every day. But with a theme, I am more focused and inspired to write.
So, my theme for the AtoZChallenge.. Post Impressionist Art
Why Post Impressionist Art?
Because over the time, I have fallen in love with this art form from the late 1800’s. So much so that I wish I had learned more about art history in school. I even looked at degrees in art history that I could do. But none of them in India provide a specialization in post impressionist art.
So, this challenge is an excuse for me to learn more about some of the most amazing paintings in the world, and share it with you.
Why European Art and not Indian? Are you an anti-nationalist/Congressi?
None of the above.
I am just a lover of art, and as it turns out, paintings by post impressionist artists inspires me to write. And may be it will motivate me to write regularly every day.
The challenge starts from 1st April, and from then on, I will be blogging everyday (except Sundays)
To stay updated, you can follow me on Facebook and Twitter, or just check the website at 12am everyday :)
Let’s hope I can make it through!
