Monthly Art Challenge
August Monthly Challenge

We invite you to participate in our monthly art challenge. The theme for this month is RAFFMA Look-Alike.

Choose a favorite artwork and recreate it using props, friends, pets or household items. The goal is to create a look-alike image of this chosen artwork.
We look forward to seeing your creativity shine!

How to participate:

  • Pick a piece of art to recreate
  • Take a picture
  • Post on social media (Instagram or Twitter) your look-alike AND the original artwork
  • Use the hashtag #RAFFMALOOKALIKE

Challenge ends August 31, 2020
Two winners will be chosen randomly and announced on September 2, 2020.

The idea was inspired by the Getty Challenge.
