30/30 September Challenge

Create 30 paintings in 30 days in September (or pieces of craft).

Can be small, or maybe large and count as two. No rules – just a fun way to help with motivation.

If enough people take part I could organise a weekend exhibition. If you don’t manage to do 30, it doesn’t matter. It’s the trying that counts.

You could still exhibit what you have. Please let me know if you are taking part by September 1st.

Good luck – Ngaio McKee.
