Art Every Day Month begins in One Week!
October 25th, 2011
Time is flying and oh my, Art Every Day Month is right around the corner! Will you be joining in?
I started doing Art Every Day Month in 2003, inspired by Nanowrimo. I wanted to challenge myself for the month of November and so I decided to create art every day for 30 days and share it on my blog. It was a wonderful experience! The next year, some other bloggers joined in and since then I've been joined every year by an amazing community of creators, striving to create every day for one month.
I'm a low-pressure type person, so I encourage everyone to join in, even if you don't complete something every day. Even just giving yourself the challenge and creating more than you usually would is a beautiful thing. But if you can create something every day for 30 days, I highly recommend it! I've learned and grown so much through doing it each year. And the community that develops is always amazing.
Your daily creations can be anything you desire (from painting to drawing to photography to writing, etc...) You can work with a theme or do something different every day. It's entirely up to you! Make it doable.
I know this year will be a little more challenging for me with a 6 month old along for the ride. I may do part of a piece each day or work on smaller pieces. I'm going to play it by ear. I'm excited to take on the challenge this year though and to see how I can make it work!
If you're intrigued by the challenge, but feel like you could use some extra support and motivation, check out the Survival Guide, which provides a private blog with a daily post filled with prompts, inspiration, and guidance to help you make it through 30 days of daily creating!
Excited? Me too!
