The Artist 90th anniversary celebration painting competitions - January 2021


To celebrate The Artist’s 90th year, we invite all artists to join in with our series of monthly challenges. Simply draw or paint an image in any media, inspired by some of the key events throughout 1931, the year of our launch.

This month's key event:

In January 1931, Guy Menzies flew the first solo non-stop trans-Tasman flight (from Australia to New Zealand) in 11 hours and 45 minutes, crash-landing on New Zealand's west coast.

YOUR JANUARY CHALLENGE: Paint on the theme of or inspired by flight.
