I start my mornings with blogging. I love logging on, reading comments, and browsing through posts from sites I follow. I also do a bit of “art blog” searching, and I’m always delighted to find new blogs to follow.
There is so much creativity in our online art community! I love seeing all the drawings and paintings, reading all the poetry and short stories, and learning about fabric arts, quilting, sculpture, photography, and so much more!
One thing I often discover through my morning browsing is another new “art challenge” taking place. One of the newer blogs I recently came across is called “My creations, art, and music” and there I found a post about an upcoming drawing challenge. It’s called “100 Days of Sketching” and you can read all about it here at the official website:
The site also points out a lot of good reasons why you might want to take on this challenge:
- To gain the habit of drawing consistently
- To add mileage to your skills
- To improve your skills in a rapid way within a short period of time
- To create over 100 pieces of work that reflects your position as an artist.
- Finally, to grow as a creator by starting and finishing something meaningful
That said, I won’t be taking on the challenge. I’m already doing a 100-day project of my own, and at this point it’s important for me to keep my art schedule somewhat simplified. I get overwhelmed if I try doing too many things all at the same time. But while I’m passing on this opportunity, I’m also “passing on” the information because this might be exactly what you need. You might find it the perfect challenge for you.
The challenge begins on May 1, which is coming up right around the corner. There is an official “prompt list”, although you don’t have to follow it.
You can download a helpful guidebook here.
You can visit the website, sign-up for the mailing list and receive the guide, the prompt list, and a tracker to mark your progress.
You can take a look at the 2021 prompt list here:
Yes, it’s difficult to read, and no, I’m not sure what a “baboo” is, but you can take it from here and have fun! Even though I won’t be joining in, I look forward to seeing the drawings other artists will be sharing.
