2023 #PleinAirpril Challenge Guidelines
To celebrate Earth Day and engage with plein-air enthusiasts across the globe, Warrior Painters initiated the #PleinAirpril Challenge in 2017. The #PleinAirpril Challenge is an Instagram campaign that challenges artists and painting enthusiasts to paint and share one plein-air painting a day during the month of April. Over the past six years, thousands of artists worldwide have participated in the challenge! Explore the hashtag on Instagram.
Below are the challenge guidelines for this year - we are going back to basics to encourage everyone to join for fun!
Every day of April 2023, paint one painting and post on your Instagram to participate.
We recommend that you use the theme "Time of Day" this year to observe and paint different times of day in your daily life - imagine how wonderful your final collage would look!
When you post, feel free to use #PleinAirpril, tag @warriorpainters on the image or mention us in the caption. We'll re-share your art with the world!
You can use any medium – traditional or digital, and try to challenge yourself to paint more from life!
Capturing the changing light and color is hard but also rewarding.
Photo studies or vitual plein-air are really cool too, as long as you paint!
That's it for the rules! This year is all about observing, painting, and having fun ♥
