Weekend Art Challenge – Indoor Sports

Student Latha Bhaduri Prabakar suggested that we challenge our students to the theme of sports and this week we have narrowed it down to ‘indoor Sports’.

This can cover a wide range of sports, including gymnastics, indoor basketball, tennis, badminton, table tennis, squash and 5 aside football to name a few. We have also included dance and ballet within our list as though Ballet it’s not technically classed as a sport, it is part of dance which is an indoor sport.

Take a look at some of the photos below for inspiration and see what ideas you can come up with for a painting revolving around this theme. Let us know why you have chosen it and what your inspiration was. We look forward to seeing your ideas next week! Have fun!

All students can take part and they can post their artwork on our main Facebook Group to share with fellow students.

If you would like your work included in our weekly Thursday blog post Email it to Melanie on

Please only post new artwork that you have created specifically for the challenge.

The idea of these challenges is to help students improve their skills by drawing, painting and creating regularly. Most of all, have fun!!

For those who are new to our challenges, we post them every Friday, so that students have a chance to pick up their pencils, pens, brushes or tablets to create artwork in their downtime over the weekend.

The results are the posted here on our blog on the following Thursday.

We love it when students add text to go along side the artwork, we will always post it on the blog if included.
