Festive Countdown Challenge

Welcome to the last weekend challenge of the year! We are getting ready for our Christmas countdown once again and we would love for you to get involved. We are looking for 32 pieces of fantastic artwork to be featured each day of December along with New Years Eve and New Years day.

We would be thrilled if students would like to take part and would be honoured to showcase their artwork as the stars of the show everyday on our blog.

The theme this year is ‘What December means to you and your family’. You may celebrate Christmas – you may not, perhaps you have other things you celebrate this time of year. Whatever you do, we would love to see it depicted in your work. Why not write a little about your artwork and reasons behind the creation of it to be posted on the blog too.

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.
