Time to get creative with Daily Art Challenge

Daily Art Challenge
The Daily Art Challenge, part of Bundy Arts at Home, will start Monday, 30 March, with Bundaberg Regional Art Galleries encouraging community members of all abilities to pick up a pencil and give it a go.

Bundaberg Regional Art Galleries are encouraging the community to pick up a pencil or a paint brush in the new Daily Art Challenge, part of the Arts Bundy at Home.

The Daily Art Challenge will start on Monday, 30 March, with the aim of connecting community members through art after the temporary closure of BRAG and Charts amid the Coronavirus public health concerns.

The team Bundaberg Regional Art Galleries are hoping people who may be staying home, or self-isolating, will take the opportunity to engage with each other using Facebook and the hashtag #artsbundyathome.

The Daily Art Challenge is open to everyone, from any age, with any level of skill, those who have never picked up a paint brush or pencil before or perhaps the person with the hidden Picasso or Pollock inside.

Art is open for interpretation and your artwork may be anything from a small doodle on a scrap of paper to perhaps a large masterpiece, a collage, sculpture or a photo; it’s the opportunity to let your imagination run wild.

There are no rules when it comes to the Daily Art Challenge, just a daily topic to explore.

On Friday the Daily Art Challenge topic will be still life and you could take the opportunity to draw fruit like these bananas.

The challenge will run over the week with a different topic for each of the seven days.

The first subject on Monday is leaves, the creativity can take place at anytime of day, with the artist posting their artwork on Facebook with the #artsbundyathome during the day.

The Daily Art Challenge topics are:

  • Monday – Leaves
  • Tuesday – A Dream
  • Wednesday – Outside Your Window
  • Thursday – Opposites
  • Friday – Home Still Life
  • Saturday – Creature
  • Sunday – What you Love

A Bundaberg Regional Art Galleries spokesperson said the gallery teams were trying to keep and promote connections with artists, patrons and the community.

“Art is often used as therapy and we all need some positive creative distractions in the current climate,” they said.

“The galleries want people who may be isolated, to have a fun task to look forward to and achieve each day.”
