Art Every Day Month 2015 Sign Up

October 5th, 2015

Art Every Day Month is once again right around the corner! This will be the 14th year 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. You could be cooking, taking pictures, dancing, 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. Just create!

Every day I'll have a new post to share a link to what you're creating (if you have a blog or flickr account), or you can simply comment on the post and write about what you're up to there. I'll be posting my creations daily here and if you follow me on Instagram (leah_art), then you may see them there too. There's now also a Facebook group where you can share your creations as well. If you're on Instagram or Facebook you can use the hashtag #aedm2015.

Read more about the challenge here and then sign up below. Use the widget to sign up if you have a blog, flickr, or other page where you'll be sharing your Art Every Day Month creations. If you don't have a place to link to, simply comment below and say you're joining in!

The challenge begins November 1st!

A new year with the “old” gang….looking forward to it!

I am really looking forward to this challange. Found out this site at the begining of 2015 and now it is will soon begin :)

Really looking forward to this challenge! This will be the first year for me as I have spent my Novembers writing for NaNoWriMo (ten years now). This time I thought I would do both AEDM and NNWM! Hoping to generate a lot of crazy creative synergy!

[...] going to be doing Art Everyday Month in November. It’s created by Leah Piken Kolidas, one of my favorite artists. I’ve been [...]

I joined last year, from time to time. This year I hope it will be a bit more regularly. And with paintings, drawings and, of course, photography & digital composites – what ever my heart desires.

Always loved this challenge – can’t believe its been so many years already – wow!!! Looking forward to November!

I am so excited to be participating with you in this. I am a RBBP person & learned about it from Jenn Lee. Looking forward to making my art practice a more regular habit. Thank you for creating this. <3

i’m joining in.

So happy to participate this year! What a great challenge! Tapping into my creativity every day will be a wonderful way to tap into my Wise Woman. I am always creating in my head and craving to get these ideas out, but not takin the time every day. So just getting the ideas out in a creative way EVERY DAY will be such a great way to up my creative practice, taking it to another level. Thanks for creating this, dear woman while listening to your Wise Woman!

Well, “gang,” this is my first year doing this. :D I’m pretty excited to see what everyone creates! :D

Hello Everyone! I am thrilled to have found you and am excited to participate. I have just left the world of 9-5 work to devote myself full-time to art; I’m still trying to establish a daily practice and find inspiration. The universe led me in a very circuitous way to this group and I am VERY thankful! :-)

sign me up!

Wouldn’t miss it – it’s a tradition!

I’m trying to sign up but keep getting an error message :(

Sounds like inspiration to me! Please add me to the list.

So glad my own blog suggested me I read an AEDM post! I came immediately to find out if the challenge was on this year. Happy to see it is!
I´ve been reviewing craft fairs and interviewing crafters all year long. Lots of art in my life right now. :D
It´s good to be back. :) {big hug}

Hi, I have got this link from the daisyyellowgroup, where I participated in the index card challenge for the first time this year. Looking forward to see what this is all about…. greetings from Namibia

Looking forward to joining in!

looking forward to this challenge and see all the fantastic artwork!

I have joined in the last 2 years and have loved doing this.. Seems to give me a boost before all the Christmas season gets so busy..

I just found out about this challenge through Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow on Facebook. It sounds like fun! I like that it includes all types of creativity and art.

Just found out about this group from Tammy Garcia. I have been trying to do art everyday on my own. It will be great to have a group of artists doing the same for support and accountability.

I got started doing art every day in 2014 with Tammy Garcia’s Index Card a Day Challenge, and except for a few missed days due to illness, or family emergencies, I have kept it up faithfully. It is the icing on every day’s cake for me! Looking forward to getting into this challenge at this time as I am in the process of moving (October 24!), and the new venue may (or may not! )

I don’t have a blog or what have you…i found this challenge on Facebook. I have been trying to get back into doing more art this past year. So far journalling has been really the only thing I have done. I am part of the J52 group, for two years now and I love it but it’s only once a week and so I struggle to push myself past that once a week creative surge. This may be just the ticket. I just recently also found the daisy yellow blog which has kept me a bit busier as well.

I just discovered this challenge today. This is totally new to me and I’m very excited – count me in!

Counting down the days!

I’d like to join and post art on the Facebook page please. Thank you!

Looking forward to November and joining your group. I think I joined your creative every day group several years ago on Flickr.. off to find your Facebook group now.

I’m in!

Hi all, this will be my first time. I am looking forward to sharing experience about all kind of creative work that will be done on daily basis. Cannot wait!

Joining in the November Art Every Day Month. Looking forward to sharing!

[...] and give you a chance to participate in the Art Every Day Month of November over at Leah’s Creative Every Day. As usual I am not sure how much I will be able to participate, but I will at least give it my [...]

Count me in please, everyday art sounds great.

Oh my goodness, is it that time again! I joined in last year and it was great tho I didn’t manage quite every day. Yes, would love to join in again this year and thanks so much for hosting.

If I didn’t sign up, I’d feel like something was missing. As November is the last leg of my GRI (graduate real estate institute), this NOvember will be challenging in more ways than one! I see a lot of line drawings (coloring book pages) in the offing! Looking forward to being here again and the streeeeeeeetch it always gives my art.

Excited to do this. I signed up for CED and did not do well at all with posting my creative work. Hope to change that this next month!

Hi, everyone! This is the first time I’m trying this. Kind of scared, but I’ve been doing something almost every day anyway.

So looking forward to it!

I don’t know how I’m going to do this with my broken arm but I guess that’s why it’s a challenge! Much needed and so excited to see everyone’s works!

This is a first for me – creating every day but I’m looking forward to giving no it a go.

I plan to join AEDM. Looking forward to it!

This looks crazy amazingly fun! I can’t wait for November to start. (bought a new journal so I am ready to go!)

Yay! I just wrote something about AEDM and found out that it is time to join again here! :) Thank you Leah for hosting this! :D

[...] artwork above is the first of the last eight faces I will be painting or drawing until the AEDM 2015. This was painted just awhile ago with photo reference. With lots of permission to play and not to [...]

Please sign me up for aedm 2015 thanks leah

I’m really excited to be apart of this challenge. I found out about this group after reading the book: Starting the Right Brain Business Plan by Jennifer Lee. I still have lots to do regarding my art business, slowly and surely, I hope to continue to build my hopes/dreams. I believe that being a part of this challenge will help me strengthen and grow in many ways.

This is my first year here and I am really looking forward to journaling with everyone.

Looking forward to this adventure.

This would be by first time ever doing something like this. I can wait for it to start!

I have done one of these before but I can’t remember what month it was. Anyway I really enjoyed it so please sign me up to do it in November. thank you

I haven’t logged for many, many months; and have had a creative slump this year.
But I can’t miss AEDM, it would be unforgivable! :)

looking forward to another round of AEDM

What would November be without this challenge?

So looking forward to doing this challenge again! Thank you Leah!

I’m looking forward to it! This year I’m going to be making abstract paintings inspired by British rock songs.

Joined the Facebook group and can’t wait, but if you could add me here, that’d be great! :)

Hi, I would like to participate, please. Thank you!

Please add me to your list.

I’ve lots of Christmas art markets going on in the next 4-6 weeks, so I’m looking forward to this gentle reminder + accountability to *make* as well as to go-go-go! Thanks for hosting this, Leah! M x o

Glad I stumbled upon you. I need a group to make me accountable. I’m an artist with a December show deadline, but also have two kids and have a full teaching schedule during the week. The art-making constantly pushed aside.

So looking forward to the challenge and seeing all the great artwork!

I took part in AEDM a couple of times, but then missed a couple of years. I hope I can take part every day – I’m a digital abstract artist – but depends on how it goes on the sale of our apartment – moving from North Cyprus to Ireland at some stage. Fingers crossed – I love the way it kicks you in the ass to get up and get creating.

Hoping to have some fun with my little artist!

I’m so excited to this….just what I think as the holiday craziness begins :) !

This is my favorite time of year and the AED challenge only makes it better! Excited about my first year of participating and looking forward to getting my 7 & 10 yr old on board.

I make something almost every day of the year. So this will be fun!

I’m in! Excited to take part in this challenge and would really like to succeed…such a commitment phobe. Shouting out a big thanks to Cynthia Morris for giving me a heads up about AEDM and also to Leah for hosting this obviously amazing gig! Looking forward to the interaction.

Looking forward to this challenge :) x

Yay! Another AED in November!

wow I’m really excited to join this challenge <3 I hope everyone will have lotsmof fun ^^

Looking forward to joining again this year.

Yay! Hoping to actually make it the entire month this time around, I’ve been attempting this feat for years and somehow I lose steam in the middle!!

This looks wonderful! I’d love to join!

Looking forward to this! All my friends are doing NaNoWriMo but I’m not much of a writer, so I’m happy to find something similar with art.

I’m in:)

I am so excited to be participating! I’ve gotten even more specific because I have decided to make elephant pictures every day. I will be using the hashtag #elephantaday on instagram & Facebook to follow. Intense but excited!

I am looking forward to joining in this year!

I’m in!

I’m in! What a great idea, thanks for hosting this!

Thank you for this beautiful place of daily brilliance from so many inspirational artists!

Hello artists! Looking forward to a highly creative November alongside all of you. Cheers!

I HOPE I just joined AEDM2015. I’m technically challenged. lol

Please count me in!


This is the push i need! Thanks for creating this fun group..

Would love to take on this challenge! Thanks for offering this opportunity.

I’m going to try my best! I know having a supportive group helps!

I’m excited to join AEDM this year!

I’m joining the day it begins….LOL Can’t wait to see everyone’s art.

A creative ride for November – wooohooo! Please hold on to the bar :o )

Looking forward to it, and I think I will comitti to a tiny journal to create in though I wanted to go bigger :D

Always looking for a good reason to push myself to do something artsy-fartsy! (nudge, nudge, nudge, right?!)

I’m in!

Read about this today from Jennifer Lee’s newsletter. It’s pretty hectic around here but I’m gonna do my best!

This should be fun!

Hi everyone,
I am excited to jump on the art everyday challenge!

I haven’t done this in a couple of years but I loved it the years I did do it AND it opened up so much inside me. I’m really looking forward to participating again this year and to see the creative outpouring it brings forth from the whole community. Thank you so much for doing this again!

I’m joining and will be posting to the Facebook group. Thanks!

Hi Folks:

Thanks for setting all this up, I’m glad to be back!
Look for my blog posts all this month :)

Here we go! Thanks Leah!

This will be the accountability I need to help me make time and give myself “permission” and the catalyst to create some of the beautiful clothing and textiles from castoffs that I’ve been talking about. Fun! :)

Just found you from Jennifer Lee’s newsletter! I think this will appreciate the creative things that I do daily; from creating a meal to drawing in my sketch book…. love it!

Happy to be participating in my third year of NiAEDM! Thanks for being here!

I am so excited to be back in cahoots with all my fabulous artist friends. Life got in the way and the roads were windy, and twisty but I have found my fleet once again!

Muah! Can’t wait to connect with old friends and new ones and
“Get our Creativity On!”

I have done 30 day art and artjournal projects in the past. The most recent one was in September. I just saw this one (via an email newsletter from Jennifer Lee) and decided it might be kind of cool to make it part of my new Falling Into Winter series of posts for my Art For Arachnoiditis Project website for Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivors. The Art for Arachnoiditis Project to empower Spinal Arachnoiditis Survivors via participation in the arts is fiscally sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts. Anyone interested can find out more about the history of the project at or on my studio website at [arachnoiditis is a spinal cord injury caused by the neurotoxins in spinal injections and invasive spinal procedures] I BELIEVE ART HEALS. Thanks for offering this shared opportunity to make more art!

So excited to participate this year!

I found out about this from Jennifer Lee’s newsletter. What a brilliant idea! I wish I’d found you sooner. Art every day but no pressure. Thank you so much.

So happy to be here! I joined two years ago, but had no way of sharing my work that time. Now I’m very inspired to do arrangements and take photos of them every day! Thank you:)

Once again, it is the season!! I hope to do better this year than last!!

Excited to participate this year!

I would like to join in!:)

Just what I need to pull my crazy life into balance!

wow! I’ts a wonderful opprtunity! Thank you!

My first time here. Please sign me in.

So excited to try this. Funny that I was just thinking how I needed to stay motivated to create more art, develop a daily-ish practice and this showed up in my life. Love how The Universe speaks!

I’m joining in but how do I post my Art
I don’t have a website yet.

I’m in.

I’m joining in on the fun!!

This will be the 1st time I’ll be participating in AEDM. Really looking forward to joining all of you in this fun adventure!

Wow! Found this on Jennifer Lee’s Newsletter and I had to sign up! I am so ready to express creativity in my business and personal/spiritual life.

Grateful for the invitation to commit to creative experiences each day in community! So happy to be here with you all!

I’ve been missing creating, and am happy to be on board this year. I’m hoping to combine the making of Art Every Day and getting my act together for the holidays, so hopefully some cool gifts will come out of this month. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi, I am excited to join in the creative exploration for the month!

sounds like fun! Please sign me up! I will be using the Facebook page.

if possible – I would like to share my spot with my mom who is living with me for a bit while she recovers from a stroke – she is re-learning to knit and has 2 projects going… Enjoying some adult coloring, and will be making her Christmas cards. The majority of posts will be mine – but if you could add her name to the Facebook group I would appreciate it and will request to add her soon.Judy Rarick is her name. Her eyes were severely affected so it’s a big deal for her to do these types of things.

Thanks! Looking forward to receiving inspiration from the group!

I giving it another try!!
