"“To a gargoyle on the ramparts of Notre Dame as Esmeralda rides off with Gringoire Quasimodo says. "Why was I not made of stone like thee?” - Victor Hugo

The world was devastated when the French cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris was engulfed in flames. The A&G Team, too, felt the repercussions of seeing the beautiful church, one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, fall victim to the fire. That is why we have decided to dedicate this month to Notre-Dame.

Head over to the Writing Challenge, where we want you to explore the magical community's side of the events. Now that we know the cathedral will be rebuilt, we'd like you to imagine how the magical community reacted and how they chose to help.

If you feel more inclined to use your graphics and drawing skills, design a new stained glass window for the cathedral in the Graphics Challenge.

Do you still feel like you have more to create? Find inspiration in this month's Weekly Prompts where you're sure to find something to tickle your imagination.


Don't forget to come and congratulate the creator of May's Artwork of the Month - a truly moving exploration of deep feelings that will not leave you indifferent.

The A&G Team is also excited to announce a brand new activity! Join us in the very first Discussion, where you will have another chance at winning ink spots for our incentive program! This month we delve into the fascinating world of Gothic architecture!


You don't know about our incentive program yet? Then you absolutely must come and have a look at our Blotting the Parchment Initiative! If you want to win juicy House Points or the exclusive Enchanted Paintbrush, you will want to let your imagination take flight by engaging in all of this month's activities!


And here the other prizes that are up for grabs this month!

School is almost over, the summer is about to begin. We are already forgetting what the cold felt like and couldn't care less about those warning us that winter will be coming again. Now it is time to celebrate the light, eat ice cream, go to the beach and - stop and thank those who have loved and guided us throughout our life. This month, the Arts & Graphics forum wants to celebrate Father's Day, held on June 16th in the United Kingdom.

Fathers come in all shapes and sizes. We want to pay tribute to all kinds of father figures that we have come across and learned to love in the Harry Potter series. Head over to our Graphics Challenge to create a scrapbook page for a magical father-child pair. If your quill is itching to share a story, hop over to our Writing Challenge to slip into the place of a wizard father, telling a fable with a life lesson to their kid. Be sure to pop into our Weekly Prompts for some additional creative inspiration throughout the month! Want to learn something new? Visit our Tutorial of the Month to learn about everchanging Avatars! Don't forget to join our new Monthly Discussion to chat about a classical father hobby!


What do you stand to gain? Well, besides the fun and excitement in coming up with creative answers to our prompts, don't forget the Blotting the Parchment Incentive Program! Head on over to learn all about the different ways to earn ink spots to win our exclusive Enchanted Paintbrush! Are you eager to start your artistic adventures, but would like a little extra help? Fret not, just look up our Mentorship Program to see how our team of mentors can help you improve your artistic skills!

This month, A&G is diving deep into something that you may or may not be familiar with: gothic culture. In a world full of hundreds and thousands of art forms, goth is often overlooked, but not this month! Start familiarizing yourself with your favorite fairytales, because the Writing Challenge this month requires that you give them a gothic makeover. If ink is more your style, channel your inner tattoo artist for the Graphics Challenge this month as you design your very own gothic HP tattoo! As usual, our weekly prompts also offer bouts of inspiration throughout the month, so make sure you look out for those as well.

Stop by our Monthly Discussion to give your input on gothic music. Who knows? Maybe you'll suggestion a band or singer that strikes someone's fancy. Also - go and give your congratulations to our Artwork of the Month winner!




Remember to check out our Blotting the Parchment Incentive Program for a chance to earn ink spots to win our exclusive Enchanted Paintbrush! Our Mentorship Program is always accepting new mentees so check that out if you've ever wanted mentoring!

October's Arts & Graphics is themed around the Department of Mysteries. So what mysterious challenges do we have in store for you? In the writing challenge, you'll be tasked with keeping the mysteries secret; in the graphics challenge, however, you'll be uncovering a new mystery. Or you could check out the discussion and talk about what the future has in store for you. Don't forget to congratulate our Artist of the Month winner!

Taps microphone. Is this on? It is? Wonderful! Clears throat, a slight crinkle of paper is picked up. First off, the staff of Arts & Graphics would like to thank everyone for being there for us. After all, Hollywood glitz and glam isn't that easy!

We would also like to thank everyone who enjoys our Monthly Contests. Whether it's the Graphics Contest, where you create an original movie poster in the classic style, or the Writing Contest in which you put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and write a movie script... We love reading and seeing every gorgeous piece that you submit! Your pieces for the Weekly Prompts are also masterfully done, and we encourage you to keep up the fantastic work!

For those who lean away from graphics or writing, your thoughts you share with us during the monthly Discussion are also important to us. We look forward to seeing your thoughts this month on fame!

Also - we can't say enough praise for our Artwork of the Month that was created by the talented SofiaR!



As always, we invite you to remember to check out our Blotting the Parchment Incentive Program for your chance to win our exclusive Enchanted Paintbrush through earning ink spots!

Thank you, once again, from the Arts & Graphics Staff. Crinkling paper sound as microphone is tapped once again before sound cuts off.

If you look around you, you might notice that you’re standing in a sea of pale pink petals. And what might those be? Why, cherry blossoms, of course! That’s right. This month, A&G has been uprooted and taken to none other than Japan.

If you’re a fan of Japanese fans, then the Graphics challenge might be up your alley. If poetry is more your style, then hop on over to the Writing Challenge! Our Weekly Prompts are sure to get your creative juices flowing throughout this month as well, so be sure to look out for those.

Additionally, this month’s Discussion is all about Japanese culture, so this is your chance to learn more about the wonderful country and the people that live in it!

Last but certainly not least, make sure you stop to admire December’s Artwork of the Month that was created by the wonderful Narcissa Black!

Hello lovely Arts & Graphics inhabitants!

I've noticed lately there's been a bit of a build-up of dust and cobwebs in the corners of A&G recently and I keep thinking to myself that this just isn't acceptable! I've spoken with the A&G team and let them know that beginning on Christmas Day (December 25th), I'll be closing the forum for just a few days to clean things up, dust out the crevices, and make everything shiny and new just in time for the beginning of January. New year, new forum!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to any of the A&G staff, listed at the top of the forum - I'll be far too busy cleaning to answer any owls!
