ARTISTS from Art on Kingsway Artists have challenged one another to paint something that is out of their comfort zone.

For example, if an artist usually paints very large paintings, he or she would be challenged to paint a smaller painting.

The painting will be sent to New York at the end of the month for the NY ROCO 6x6 Art Challenge and each painting will be sold for $20 (R236). The event has been going on for 10 years and artist from all over the world enter their paintings. The Art on Kingsway Artists are hoping to inspire the Amanzimtoti community to support the initiative at the end of April when each artist will again paint a 6 x 6 artwork and on a chosen evening each invited person will purchase a painting and the proceeds will be donated to a charity.
