Art Challenges

Challenge Paintings are a fun way for CTPS members to showcase and expand their skills.

All members are encouraged to paint a work that demonstrates the monthly challenge. At the meeting, members who chose to rise to the challenge are asked to show their work and to speak on how they developed the composition, what techniques they tried, and what materials they used, and so on. Framing is not required. Often, members simply mat their work for display.
