Art Challenges and Activities
On Sept. 2, I participated in the 1st official World Art Drop Day (#artdropday), created by the artist, Mr. Jake Parker. We were tavelling and was in a small town in NY, called Hancock. None the less, I had a great time creating and leaving free art around town.
I will be participating in the the new challenge created by Jake parker back in 2009, called "Inktober".
Here is what the challenge is all about:
31 Days 31 Drawings
Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want). 2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.) 3) Hashtag it with #inktober 4) Repeat
Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.
That's it! Now go make something beautiful.
