Artpocalypse April: A Daily Egyptian art challenge

Stay at home orders and quarantines may mean you have a lot of free time on your hands. The Daily Egyptian would like to encourage everyone to be creative and share their talents during this time.

To that end, the Daily Egyptian is inviting readers to participate in Artpocalypse, an art challenge lasting through the month of April.

The rules are simple: create a piece of art that is related to the prompt for the day, take a photo of it and tag the photo with #DEartpocalypse and @dailyegyptian for a chance to be featured on the Daily Egyptian’s social media accounts.


Artpocalypse is open to all readers and you can use whichever medium you want or have at your disposal. The challenge starts April 1 and lasts through April 30.
