Museum Art Challenge 2021
29 Nov 2021 - 2 Jan 2022
The Museum Art Challenge invites you to make art inspired by our incredible collections.
Between 29 November and 2 January we invited you to get creative and make art inspired by National Museums Scotland’s incredible collections and sites. There were 5 weekly themes to act as prompts for the challenge and get you thinking. As an extra twist, this year the themes were homophones– words that sound the same but have a different meaning, such as peace and piece. The Museum Art challenge was open to everyone - no experience necessary.
To take part we asked you to email a picture of your artwork (drawing, painting, sculpture, collage) to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could take up the challenge every week if you wanted. We received fantastic submissions from artists of all ages and each week two staff ‘pickers’ selected their 5 favourite pieces - a very difficult task!
If you would like to see all this year’s artworks, staff picks, or find your own entry, please follow the links to the Flickr albums below. Thank you very much to everyone who took part in Museum Art Challenge. We hope you’ll join us for more opportunities to get creative in 2022.
