SAA Challenge - Still Life

Closing date: 01/03/2024

There’s no need to go outdoors to find inspiration this winter. You can find inspiration in everyday objects around your home for this challenge, whether it’s your kitchen table or dressing table, your home is full of interesting objects to draw and paint.

This challenge is a great opportunity to develop your skills and master perspective and angles. If you don’t know where to start, we have plenty of tips and advice available on our Knowledge Hub, on Video on Demand and in our blog.

We’ll share our favourite paintings over social media and in the Spring edition of paint & create.

Good Luck.
