Each week a prompt will challenge participants to create something new in any form of art — a song, a video, a painting, a poem, something out of fabric. Those who are stuck one week are encouraged to try a different form of art. Group submissions are also welcome.

Weekly prompts will be posted Tuesday, starting June 15 to a new Facebook group, Summerland Arts SPARK! Creative Challenge, on Instagram @summerland_arts_culture and on their website summerlandarts.com.

“You’re encouraged to post your creations on the Facebook page. And don’t worry if you’re a bit late or miss a week. There aren’t any rules,” said art council director Elaine Watts who organized Spark with Sharon Kurtz of the Summerland Potter’s Guild.

At the end of summer, small prizes will be awarded in various categories, including kids under 12, written works and sculptural, culinary and performing arts.
