Monthly challenge

To all students that completed the foundation phase:

I urge you to be part of the monthly challenge to motivate you and guide you into looking for interesting subject matters.  This is not compulsory but will be beneficial to your art journey!  If you are busy with a painting of your own choice, it will be advisable to fit this project into your schedule for the month.  You can do this over and above the painting you work on.  If this will not be your primary project for the month, then choose the easiest medium you are comfortable with... Enjoy!

 

Let's start 2020 with new hope.
