Closing date: 01/12/2024

Time to break out the champagne and dust off your dancing shoes – this Members’ Gallery challenge is all about celebration. Whether letting loose some fireworks, or stringing up the decorations, this challenge is all about celebrations – what and how do you like to celebrate?

This challenge is great to push yourself into showcasing dark darks and very bright lights – can you capture the essence of fire? Or the metallic shine of tinsel? Show us what you’ve got and we’ll share our favourite paintings over social media and in the Winter ’25 edition of Paint & Create.

Good Luck!
