30 Days, 30 Powerful Little Paintings

We hope that Every April, artists from all over the world take on the all Acrylic, all April painting challenge by doing one small acrylic painting every day for the entire month.

I am creating the #AcrylicApril challenge as a way to introduce painters to the gifts of daily painting with Acrylic.This monthly challenge will help every acrylic artist unlock the true potential of the acrylic medium and their own art voice.

Anyone can do Acrylic April,

Just grab your paint, your brush and hit the studio (even if it’s your kitchen table).

#AcrylicApril rules:

1) Make a painting on a surface 12x12 or smaller. ( sorry for the confusion)

My live classes use an 8x8 

2) Share it online

3) Hashtag it with #AcrylicArpril #AcrylicApril202

#AcrylicAprilItsNoJoke   #TheArtSherpa   and be sure to add the day of the challenge, or word prompt, etc

4) Repeat Daily from April 1 ( no fooling) to April 30th

How to do the Challenge:

Do your best to paint daily. Some Days may be artwork you are excited about, some days you may scribble out an abstract, but under no circumstances should your be hard on yourself. If you make 30 little paintings you are a winner. If you make less than 30 you are a winner. Do your best, paint anything you want using the prompts and/or the daily tutorials with The Art Sherpa

Wait there are daily tutorials not just prompts ?? THAT'S right!!!

This is an Art Sherpa painting challenge so it’s extra awesome.. This challenge comes with a daily live video lesson you can follow along with. So you can use the prompts, follow the lesson, or do your own thing. Either way you are going to succeed. This is going to change your art world.

I will be teaching my lessons on an 8x8 art panel.

That's it! Now go make something beautiful.

Anyone, from Anywhere in the world, no matter who you are or how much painting experience you have can Join in.

You are invited to paint along!!

How much does it cost?  -

IT'S FREE

( so you can buy more art supplies )

My Paint brands of choice are  Sennelier’s Acrylique, Golden Artist Color,  or Sennelier Abstract Acrylic. I also like Holbein, Artist loft level 3 and M Graham. 

 The links lead to the listed color in all 3 brands 

These products were hand picked by me. First two links are professional grade and economy Abstract Acrylic is the brant that I personally recommend for student grade.

Filbert or Cats Tongue for Acrylic






For Acrylic April will be using a few more brushes so that we can accomplish and learn some new techniques. You do not need to have the exact brand of brushes. When it comes to Bright you might be able to use a single bright there are a lot of ways to save money. my students often paint with different tools and that's not something that I mind at all. This list of brushes and information should be used as a guide and I highly recommend you make this work within your own personal budget or painting process.



I like Raphael Textura Brushes, Simply Simmons Extra firm filament and Hog brushes. Silver brushes and Princeton brushes for firm try catalyst and Creative mark pro-stroke . Just to name a few. I will do a studio set up for AA april video that should release before the event begins.
