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:

1. THE ARTWORK

2. HOW TO ENTER THE CHALLENGE

3. HOW YOU WILL WIN

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

4. WHAT WILL YOU WIN

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