String Painting

Step 1.

Create a work of art using the string painting technique.

Some tips for string painting:

– Use acrylic paint mixed with a bit of water
– If you don’t have string, try dental floss!
– Once your painting is dry, you can leave it as is, or add detail to it using ink, pastel, or more paint. This technique works great when combined with zentangle patterns!

Step 2.

Show us! Send your photos to janice@thenina.ca, and share them on social media using #NinaArtChallenge. We’ll share your artwork with the world in our “digital art gallery”.

Some tips for photographing your work:
– Make sure your artwork is well lit. Natural light (from a window or outside) works best!
– Try your best to take the photo straight-on to avoid weird angles. Hanging your art on a wall to take the photo works great, or you can lay your piece flat and shoot from above (but watch out for shadows!)

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.
