Paint The Day, Wolverhampton’s 'ultimate art & photography challenge' has returned online for the summer.  

The long-running family event - this is the sixth edition of the initiative - is organised by Newhampton Arts Centre (NAC) and this year aims to encourage artists and families to get creative in lockdown.

Paint The Day takes place on Saturday 27 June and is open to visual artists of all levels and practices, including professionals, amateurs and children.

The initiative challenges participants to create their very own masterpiece in just one day, using their own home as a starting point. Participants can capture a scene within their home if isolating, or within a one-mile radius if it seems safe to do so (depending on government guidelines at the time).

Artists can use anything from traditional watercolours and experimental photography to abstract collage, allowing them to interpret their scene in any visual style they wish. They must, however, be able to digitally submit their entries to NAC. An online exhibition of all entries will be available to view the next day. A physical exhibition of the originals will follow at NAC in the autumn, when prizes will be awarded.

As in previous years there will be more than £500 in prize money available. All artwork must be submitted online to Newhampton Arts Centre.
