World Art Drop Day
All artists, (that means students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, EVERYONE who creates) this September 6th* is World Art Drop Day. Wherever you find yourself that day, drop a piece of your art and tell someone where to find it. The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other and there's nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.
Here's how it works:
- Draw a picture and hide it somewhere.
- Take a photo of either the art or the hiding spot or a combination of both.
- Post the image, the city you dropped it in, and a hint on any social media of your choice. Be sure to included the hashtag: #artdropday
- Then move on, hoping someone finds it. OR hang around and meet your new friend.
Jake Parker created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his 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 social media outlet(s).
3. Hashtag it with #inktober
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.
This challenge is all about mustaches! Basically the challenge consists of drawing a different mustache for the entire month of November. You can go the traditional route or go in a completely different route, maybe draw famous mustaches; the main thing is to have Mo' fun than you ever thought possible when it came to drawing mustaches!
March of Robots
This challenge consists of drawing a robot every day for the entire month of March. It can be either in ink or you can go the color route, it's completely up to you; but you can't skip a day. You can also draw established robots like Mazinger, The Iron Giant, Voltron, Transformers or you could come up with your own robots; it's totally up to you. The main thing is for you to have fun and explore your robotic imagination!
