Easter Holiday Challenge

I can't let a holidays go past without a challenge these days.  It breaks my heart to think of my little artists missing out on art class and not creating for 2 whole weeks....

So with the shops full of these cute little chicks:

The challenge hatched from an egg (or my head so to speak..).  This challenge is open to all existing students of Sunnyside Art House.


Keep creating these school holidays by entering the Sunnyside Art House Easter Holiday Challenge……

All you need to do is create a piece of artwork that involves your Easter Chick (I attached those cute little guys above to the top of the challenge page)

Some ideas are:
  •  Do a drawing and glue your Easter chick into the scene 
  • Make a nest or home for your chick out of recycled materials
  • Use items from nature to make your Easter chick a home
  • Use your Easter chick as a drawing prompt and do a painting of him / her 
  •  Use plasticine or clay to make a scene for your Easter chick or make him / her some new friends
  • Finger knit a scarf for your Easter Chick 
  •  Use material scraps for a nest, clothes, blanket for your Easter Chick
  •  Draw, make or decorate the Egg that your Easter Chick came from

Let your imagination go wild and think up other ideas.  

A mini chocolate Easter egg for everyone who enters and there will be prizes for the three best entries.

Here are a few quotes to inspire you:

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun – Mary Lou Cook.

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see – Edgar Degas

I dream my painting and then I paint my dream – Vincent Van Gogh

Art is as natural as sunshine and as vital as Nourishment – Mary Ann Kohl

Have a great creative, relaxing holidays!
