March/April 2020 Challenge

TNSC Creation Challenge

To make the most of the current situation with social distancing and event cancellations, the TNSC is developing monthly challenges to encourage our members to create! These challenges are intended to encourage skill development, explore new techniques, and expand artistic knowledge. Don’t think you can’t do it – the point is to practice and learn!

For those who undertake the challenges, pieces may be submitted online like we do for shows. We will have set up an online “Challenge Gallery” so we can see how others interpreted the challenge.  Don’t worry if you are feeling self-conscious about your piece either, we won’t put names to them in the online gallery. We want every TNSC member to give it a try!

Everyone who submits a piece will have an entry into a random draw for a $25 gift certificate to a local business. Supporting, Active, AFCA and SFCA TNSC members all have an equal chance in the draw!

The Challenge for March/April 2020

Capture on paper/canvas/board a still life of a glass of water.   A few photo references have been provided but don’t feel you have to use these – be creative! You may use your own photo reference or create your own still life!

The key learning points for this challenge are seeing the shapes and values.

Your piece may be done in any style, any FCA approved medium, any size, and on any type of surface.

Deadline for Entry:     April 30, 2020 midnight PDT
