join the #NinaArtChallenge
to stay creative at home!

The Nina has suspended our programs until the COVID-19 situation has stabilized, but we’re challenging all of our artists to keep making art at home with the #NinaArtChallenge!

Because we know our artists aren’t the only people stuck at home unexpectedly right now, we’d like to invite all of our friends and followers to participate in these art challenges as well. You can sign up now to receive the #NinaArtChallenge prompts by email and create along with us.

Follow the prompts to create art projects at home.

Let the prompts inspire you and get creative! These projects will require basic materials that most people have at home, but feel free to make them your own using whatever supplies you have available.


Share your artwork with us!

Send photos of your projects to, and share them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #NinaArtChallenge so we can share your work in our virtual art gallery.
