Obsidian Art Weekly Art Challenge
Welcome to our Weekly Art Challenge!
If you’re looking for new creative challenges or inspiration at the moment for yourself or your kids, why not take part in Obsidian Art’s new Weekly Art Challenge?
Each week we will announce 3 themes (see below for this week’s themes) – you choose from the 3 themes the one that inspires you most and create a piece of artwork in any medium you’d like (painting, drawing, collage, mosaic, textile, sculpture, etc)
Once you’ve created your masterpiece just take a photo and send it to us via email or on Instagram.
WE WILL CHOOSE SOME OF OUR FAVOURITES EACH WEEK AND PUBLISH THEM ONLINE IN OUR VIRTUAL GALLERY!
See a selection of our favourites from last week's challenge HERE.
We have four age categories :-
Age 3 to 6
Age 7 to 11
Age 12 to 17
Or how about collaborating on an entry as a household? Just tell us it’s a Family Entry & that’s fine too!
This will be the FINAL WEEK of our Weekly Art Challenge (as we're planning to re-open the gallery on June 17th and need to focus on making the space Covid-secure).
THIS WEEK’S THEMES
Choose from one of the following :-
• A Still Life
• A Landscape
ENTRY DEADLINE : Midday, Sunday, 7 June
WHO CAN ENTER
Everyone! Any age or location, UK or overseas.
HOW TO ENTER
Your entry: Entries can be any size & any medium, one entry only per person per week (but you can enter every week - each week we will announce three new themes to choose from and you can enter every week).
Your image: Send just ONE image of the piece. If sending via email, this must be sent as a JPEG.
Your details: Tell us your name (for under 18s we will only publish your first name), your age if you’re under 18, and your location (the town / city & county you live in, or country is you’re outside the UK).
Optional text: If you’d like to, you can also add some text to accompany the piece – this could include for example, a title for the piece, an explanation of the piece, or what inspired you – this is optional, just something to add if you’d like to.
Optional video: if you’re able to, or would like to, you can also video some of the process of you creating the piece which you can send to accompany your entry – again, this is totally optional and not essential.
Send us your entry: You can send us your entry either :-
Via email to firstname.lastname@example.org - send a single JPEG image of your entry along with your details (name, age if 18 or under & your location), plus optional text about your image; or
Via Instagram – post your image on your Instagram account and tag us in your post with @obsidianartgallery and include the hashtag #obsidianartchallenge
Your entry must be submitted by midday on Sunday 7 June.
We will publish a selection of our favourite entries online and on social media the following week.
ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

Children at home? When you need a break from home schooling why not encourage your children to create a work of art, as simple or elaborate as you (or they) like, and enter our new weekly competition.
Home alone? Fancy a new challenge? How about trying a new medium or a topic you wouldn’t normally consider.
Family members at home? Create something collaboratively as a household and get everyone involved!
Go on - Get creative!
