Painting Around the world with Jon and Ginger Photo Challenge
April 2020 Maine in the Fall
Step 1. Paint the photo shown on a 9×12 or smaller canvas with acrylic paint.
Step 2. Send us the picture using the form provided.
Earn a certificate by sending us a photo of your finished Painting that you can print and frame between April 3 and April 30, 2020. The form must be submitted by the end of April.
We will be doing a new photo challenge every month from photos of Jon and Ginger’s travels.
Be sure to fill out the form provided, (See link below!)
These little challenges are for you to see not only what you have learned, but what you need to improve on. There will be no PACs (Personal Art Coaching) offered on the lesson during the “active” month.
In the following month, Ginger will do a full tutorial on this particular photo which will be posted here. At that time, any of the Senior Academy Members at www.gingercooklive.gallery can request a PAC or Personal Art Coaching.
NOTE: Do not use the Contact Us form ON THE HOME PAGE.
This is NOT a competition, but more of personal growth “test” to see where you are and see if you are improving. For us, it gives a gauge to determine what types of lessons might be helpful in the future if we are seeing a common struggle among the artists.
You will notice that right now, there is no video tutorial! Not yet! Look for that in the following month. Our goal is to teach you to be an artist and paint your own photographs or reference material. This is just the beginning!
This is your chance to share, so show us what you can do. We encourage everyone to participate and give this a try. We want to see your vision of this photograph on canvas. The painting size is 9×12 or smaller, and only these sizes will be accepted to receive a certificate.
You can only submit one. Paintings must be cropped and in focus. We will post an album of the paintings on the website when the month is over.
See the "What to Paint" tab below for full image larger.
Jon is capturing another great photo that is sure to end up as a tutorial for our Academy Members.
You will be painting the photo that is under the “What To Paint” tab…not me! You will need to paint a 9×12″ or smaller surface to paint with acrylics to be considered for the “Certificate of Completion”.
This is an "Introductory Level" or what used to be known as a "1-Cookie" level challenge.
