Art Every Day Month 2013!

October 3rd, 2013

Art Every Day Month is once again right around the corner! Every year for over ten years now, I have been creating daily for the month of November and inviting others to join in. It is a low pressure challenge for anyone who wants to challenge themselves to create daily for a month. Low pressure means, if you miss a day, brush yourself off, and get back to it. No worries. By art, I'm talking broadly. So you could be cooking, taking pictures, writing music, crafting for the holidays, painting, sculpting, writing poetry, making jewelry, sewing, knitting, art journaling, you name it. You could decide to do a small 2"x2" drawing each day or you could do something different every day. Up to you! I tend to do more drawing and painting because that's what I like, but you can follow your heart. 

Every day I'll post a place to share a link to what you're creating (if you have a blog or flickr account), or you can simply talk about what you're up to in the comments. I'll be posting my creations daily here and if you follow me on instagram (leah_art), then you may see them there too. If you're on instagram you can use the hashtag #aedm2013. 

Read more about the challenge here and then sign up here. The challenge begins November 1st! I hope to create along with you! Creating for a month always gives me a huge boost. I can't wait. 

I'll be posting about the Survival Guide (an ecourse to give you a little extra oomph and motivation if you need it) and putting up a link to purchase in the next week.

Woohoo! It’s nearly that time of year again :)

Yeah! I have really enjoyed the past 2 years of participating. Can’t believe it has been over 10 years for you!

Hi Leah and other artists! I’ve had a crazy busy art summer and October with art shows, annual studio tour, etc. November seems like a perfect month to focus on creating, more than exhibiting. I do have a show in November, but already have a painting in mind to finish, and it is only a two-day show. Have a creative November! :-)

This sounds like a great idea cant wait for november thanks leah :)

Wow, that time of year already! I always love the results of participating – thanks for running with it again!

WooooooHoooooo! Already in. :D My 8th for sure, might be 9th. It is certainly part of my life now. :) I finish the month with a lot of work done and always with a few new friends that I keep along the year. Thank you!
PS: going to give a shout out through my page. This is going to be such a party. :D
