Arts Alliance of Stratford September Arts Meeting

Zoom Meeting, Free, and Open To All

Join us at the September Monthly meeting of Arts Alliance of Stratford. Meet and network with other local creative people.

Theme Challenge: The American Worker

The challenge is open to visual art, writing, poetry, music or performance.

September begins by honoring the American worker with the Labor Day holiday. Thomas Hart Benton honored the American worker with the murals he was commissioned to paint for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the Great Depression. Our roads, bridges, skyscrapers and homes were built by generations of workers. How will you honor them?

You can use the photo of the carpenter on a construction site as a starting point to explore your own idea of how to interpret the American worker. Visit the registration page to download your own copy from the Pixabay website. You can also come up with your own Interpretation.

Grab your paints, pencils, writing pad or other creative implements and make something inspired based on The American Worker. Use the theme to create something unique. Follow your imagination where it takes you.

Each month the challenge theme is announced at the end of the monthly meeting. The finished challenge work will be presented at the following meeting.
