to stay creative at home!

The Nina has re-opened our studios with limited capacity, but we’re challenging all of our artists to keep making art at home with the #NinaArtChallenge!

Everyone is welcome to participate. You can sign up now to receive the #NinaArtChallenge prompts by email and create along with us.

Follow the prompts to create art projects at home.

Let the prompts inspire you and get creative! These projects will require basic materials that most people have at home, but feel free to make them your own using whatever supplies you have available.


Share your artwork with us!

Send photos of your projects to, and share them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #NinaArtChallenge so we can share your work in our virtual art gallery.
