Quick Kick February

#QuickKickFebruary

“Quick Kicks” are our monthly creative challenges that you can complete in 15 minutes or less per day.

For ‘Quick Kick February’ we are challenging you to create a ‘fingerpainting’ every day throughout the month of February. You can use any wet medium you like such as gouache, kid’s poster paints, acrylics, ink or watercolours (we don’t recommend oils in case it hurts your skin).

When is the last time you created a fingerpainting?

The aim of this challenge is to find your inner child! By experimenting to see what marks you can make with your hands, you will bring back a childlike playfulness to your work.
