Heide at Home still life painting challenge

Paint a still life inspired by your surroundings at home in the style of one of the Heide circle artists featured here. Take a photo and enter it into our painting competition at programs@heide.com.au. Each week we will select the best creative submissions to post on Instagram and at the end of the month a winner will be chosen. The lucky winner will receive a one-year Heide membership and a book from the Heide shop. There are two categories (under 18 and over 18) so please let us know which category you are entering in and which Heide artist inspired you.

Don't forget to tag #heideathome

Happy painting!
