The Arts Center of the Capital Region starts the 'Art is Everywhere' Challenge

Hello from the Arts Center!

We may not be able to invite you into our studios to make art right now, but you don't need a paintbrush, a pottery wheel, or a sewing machine to create art! Turn your home into a studio and get creative with our Art Is Everywhere Challenge.

What's that, you ask?

Think about all those things in your home that you were saving for later, or have been sitting in that "junk" drawer for all these years. You can be creative with all those things to make a unique piece of art, and maybe even win a free class at the Arts Center! Every week we will post a new challenge on Facebook and email you about it, and every week someone will win a free class. We'll run the challenge every week until we open again for classes. At the end of the challenge, the overall winner will get free classes for a year!

This week's challenge: Junk Drawer Character Sculptures!

How the Challenge works:


-Contestants must create a piece of art using everyday objects based on

the theme of the week.

-This week’s challenge theme is Junk Drawer Character Sculptures


-Post a picture of your finished piece in the comments below, like our page, tag a friend, and name your masterpiece


-All entries will be posted here, and the public will vote with likes on their favorite pieces

-The piece with the most likes will win!


-One free class/camp of your choice at the Arts Center! (Tuition will be covered; you just pay materials fee)


-The Junk Drawer Character Sculpture challenge runs TODAY April 2, 2020 to April 6,2020

-Public voting starts Tuesday ends on Wednesday at noon

-A winner will be announced HERE on Wednesday evening

-The next challenge will be announced on Thursday April 9


-The Arts Center will be creating an online gallery that will showcase all

work being submitted for each week.

Get creative with us!
