april 30-day drawing challenge


a little secret: I’ve always wanted to host a drawing challenge.

whenever I have participated in challenges (specifically inktober), I always find myself super creatively motivated. I’m also a firm believer that drawing, regardless of what medium you work in day to day, is just a good thing to do. drawing, illustrating, doodling, sketching…whatever it is you’re doing and at whatever level you’re doing it at…is a technical skill! so, it’s important to keep up those skills and practice, practice, practice.

now it wouldn’t be my kind of drawing challenge if it didn’t include prompts like: something two-headed, an eyeball, an urban legend, or a dead president (festive right?).  the rules of this challenge are simple:

+ draw something everyday based on the prompt. this is totally your own interpretation, and thinking outside of the box is very much encouraged!

+ your drawing can be done in any medium and on any substrate of your choosing. personally, I’ll be doing my daily drawings in a moleskine sketchbook with pitt pens (and maybe colored pencil here and there).

+ you do not have to have any drawing skills to participate. it’s about doing a creative task everyday, and practicing!

+ share your work on social media using the hashtag: #aprilartchallenge

so there you have it folks. grab your art supplies and your art homies…and let’s do this thing. the challenge starts FRIDAY!

  1. Hey Roxanne

    I was just saying I need to draw more and to do so I need to draw everyday… so I am up for the challenge! I have printed out the sheet and posted it to my wall. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. I might draw on my iPad

    • yes! I feel like I’m always telling myself to draw more – and this challenge will definitely keep me accountable…especially hosting it! lol – can’t to see you tackle the prompts.

  2. I have just started making myself draw everyday. Mainly to get better at it but also to get over the fear of sketching in public!! So count me in. I am off to Sydney tomorrow, to look after my 5 month old grandson! So life is exciting at the moment and then this as well…yippey! Lynda 🙂

    • I hear you on sketching in public – I get like that every now and then. I look forward to seeing your daily drawings!!

  5. Popping in via my friend Dawn (girlunwinding) Well, this sounds like fun. Wonder if I can combine it with all the other April challenge I’m contemplating, or wonder if I’m just plain nuts. LOL

    • haha…probably a little bit of both! I would say choose your prompt from either challenge pending on your mood that day!
