9 Prompts, Multiple Winners, Big Prizes

At Pentalic, we aim to provide fun challenges that encourage artists to elevate their art skills and introduce them to new experiences. This summer, we are challenging artists to go outside their studios to draw or paint the beauty around them. For the months of July, August, and September, we are hosting outdoor art challenges that include the opportunity to win amazing plein air-themed prizes from M. Graham, Bee Paper, Connoisseur, and Pentalic, to fuel your future outdoor art adventures. To participate, complete all nine different plein air art challenges by the 28th of each month. These challenges range from peeking outside your front door to taking your sketchbook with you on your next nature hike.
