Blog: Supply-Savvy Challenge!

Join us from 11-15 November for five days of fantastic FREE video tutorials and your chance to win prizes worth over £130!

Our Savvy Supply Challenge is coming very soon and we hope you’ll join us for five days of FREE fun, frugal projects! Between 11-15 November, we will be bringing you five video tutorials where we share creative but inexpensive ways to create amazing effects using your acrylic paints alongside some common household materials!

Over the week, we’ll will create some fabulous Artist Trading Cards – miniature works measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches. We’ve kept the processes simple and the designs small so that each class will only take you a few minutes, but if you’d rather create journal pages, tags, cards or anything else – go for it! Your tutors for the week are Katy Leitch and Riikka Kovasin.

How to take part:

  • Each day from 11-15 November we will send you a new project via email and we will also post that project in our Facebook group
  • Share your creations inspired by the challenge in our Facebook group – there will be an album for each day of the challenge
  • At the end of the challenge you can (optionally) swap your ATC cards with up to three other people in the Facebook group

You can just get the videos if you don’t want to play along but you need to make at least one creation and post it to be entered for the prize draw!

You can find our Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/mixedupcreatives/

You can get our newsletter here (pssstt – you need the newsletter if you want to keep the video inks): https://artfulacademy.com/newsletter/

One lucky participant will win:

  • A place on Savvy Supply School, worth £55 and
  • A selection of fabulous mixed media supplies worth over £80

Plus the creator of our favourite ATC of the week will win a course of their choice up to the value of £20!

The aim of the challenge is to show you some easy techniques that are inexpensive and fun to do. The challenge will give you a little taster of the philosophy behind our new Savvy Supply School, which is all about exploring frugal, found and free art supplies. This challenge is just to dip your toe – our course will have much more in-depth content but still using only commonplace mixed media supplies and plenty of imagination!

Riikka and I are looking forward to bringing you this challenge, we hope you have fun!
