Challenge Four: 

Difficulty level MEDIUM

Oh no! It’s our final Challenge AbEx Challenge. We’re sad that it’s drawing to a close but it’s been loads of fun. The next challenge can be entered from the comfort of your own home – but it will test the limits of your artistic ability.

Ready? Here’s what you have to do…

  • Draw/paint/sculpt/create a piece of abstract art. Spend no more than 20 minutes on it (we can’t check so we’re trusting you not to cheat). You can use any materials you choose.

  • Take a photograph of your creation and send it to us by 12:00 on Friday September 02. You can tweet us, post it on our Facebook wall or email it to us.

  • Abstract art is subjective, so we’ll be picking the winner at random from all the entries. We can’t wait to see what you create – if your reactions to abstract art are anything to go by, they’re going to be fabulous!

Good luck everyone! Don’t forget that AbEx closes on Sunday September 04, so if you’re looking for inspiration you need to get down there quick. The winner will receive an awesome AbEx prize pack, a pair of tickets to visit the Gallery plus some extra goodies from Shop AGO. Amazing!

To book your tickets to visit Abstract Expressionist: New York please visit our website.

Don’t forget that whoever performs the best across all four challenges will be crowned the Ultimate Abex Challenge Champion. The Champion will get a bumper prize pack including a family/dual AGO Membership, a night for two at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel, AbEx goodies and more.
