This week, the Six Word Story Challenge – 6WSC – is all about ART.
Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities. In this post we focus on the visual arts, which includes the creation of images or objects in fields including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media.
Art may be characterized in terms of mimesis (its reflection of life), expression, communication of emotion, or other qualities. During the Romantic period, art came to be seen as “a special faculty of the human mind to be classified with religion and science”. Though the definition of what constitutes art is disputed and has changed over time, general descriptions mention an idea of imaginative or technical skill stemming from human agency and creation.
The nature of art, and related concepts such as creativity and interpretation, are explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.

The challenge for you:
Write a story about ART in just six words. Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.
Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.
Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…
Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one here at Figments. I will include your contribution in this post, forming a list of stories.
Will you join me? Will you? Say you do. And share the challenge news!
I look forward to your stories.

Abstract paintings left on the curb.
Your words call up an instant image of street art, Alice. Well done!
And here is my story: https://drieskewrites.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/6wsc-art/
Danny, you have written an interesting story, based on the painting. I sure hope your head is still attached to your body. Don’t you ever let anyone take that away from you, you need it!
Very nice, who sculpted this Marion. Thanks for very inspiring prompt, here is my story- http://amaltaas.wordpress.com/2013/11/30/six-word-story-challenge-art/
Indira, again you published a beautiful combination of photo and story. A story with a deeper meaning. Awesome, both the artist and her art.
I don’t know who sculpted it, but it is in Dublin.
