De’VIA Challenges

Nancy Rourke began doing month long challenges where she would do a new painting every day for one month. See this video for Nancy’s explanation of the challenges

Since 2014 De’VIA & Surdism Central FB group has hosted many challenges – some lasting one day and others lasting a full month.
