Art Every Day Month 2018 Sign Up

October 5th, 2018

Art Every Day Month is once again right around the corner! This will be the 17th year I have been creating daily for the month of November and inviting others to join in. Art Every Day Month (AEDM) 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 a broad view. 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. This year, I think I'll mix painting in with children's book illustration. Take some time this month to think about what you might like to work on or just show up and create!

If you're on Facebook, join the Facebook group where you can share your creations as well. If you're on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook you can use the hashtag #arteverydaymonth2018. I'll also have a daily post here starting November 1st, where you can share links to creations you've made. 

Read more about the challenge here and then sign up below by leaving a comment. If you have a blog, website, flickr page, or instagram handle where you'll be sharing, share that below in the Mr. Linky form. If you aren't sharing your work online, then just leave a comment on this blog post saying that you're participating. 

The challenge begins November 1st!

Looking forward to this challenge. This will be my first year!

Count me in.

Going to do a month of ink drawings and post on my Pinterest board. Looking forward to this. First year posting somewhere consistently!

This sounds like fun!

Looking forward to this!

Looking forward to the challenge. Idon’t have a URL.

I’m IN! I’ll be taking to heart the “low pressure” part of the AEDM description as I continue to let go of the giant stopper called Perfection. Wait, let’s not even give it more weight by capitalizing it: perfection. Doing it hesitant/scared or even being willing to do something half-assed or shi**ily is still doing something. This is the most important part for me with any challenge. No. More. Waiting.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone brings into this round of AEDM!!!
Thanks for joining.

Looking forward to November now!!

I missed this last year, and didn’t get to the end in the year before that – so let’s see how this year goes :)

Yay! Count me in!

Missed last year…looking forward to participating again.

Looking forward to this :)

I just discovered this challenge and think it’s a wonderful idea! I will be joining this year :)

Gonna give this a try again this year.

Hey Gayle,

Just your comment is enough if you don’t have a url. Welcome!


Haven’t been very active on the art front in a while, so looking forward to this challenge!

So excited to participate!!!! see you all soooon!!!!

Looking forward to this.

Looking forward to this, hoping it will help jump start my creative practice, again. Did this 6 years ago and really lost a lot of momentum over the years. So thanks for continuing to do this!

Hello! I was looking what to do after Inktober. This was my first time doing it, and I liked it so much, that I went to look ideas, what to do next. I was thinking about taking challenge to draw everyday, but was little bit scared of it. Creative Every Day 2018 is my first step to it. Hope to finish this year with a drawing per day!

I intend on taking part and would upload videos of me making the art on YouTube. The last time I tried drawing every day, I only lasted for 4 days. I hope this time it would be different (but no pressure). ✌

I haven’t participated in several years AND I believe this is exactly what my spirit is looking for right now.

Hooray and hooray! So happy to be here with you again!

Looking forward to this, never done it before and want to kick start my art

Loved the experience last year, and excited to take on a new art challenge this year. Leah and the art community here are kind and very supportive, and everyone committed to this challenge will come away with a great sense of joy, fun and a body of art to celebrate.

I am joining with trepidation, Leah!! lol Not sure I can do every day, but I need some motivation! Love that you are still doing this! xo I’ll be posting on IG and will use the hashtag!

Can’t wait to start!

I’m looking forward to this creative challenge. This will be my first year.

It’s my first time trying this and I’m so excited!

Yay for AEDM and YAY for Leah! Thanks for hosting this every year my dear sweet friend. I won’t be able to join in for the first week (gasp!!! so weird after all these years) as I’ll be on a silent meditation retreat, but I’ll jump in later in the month. xoxo

I am excited!

Last year was my first experience with this challenge and I had a great time. Can’t wait to be a part of it again. Thanks for creating this beautiful platform :-)

Just what I was looking for! I will post on Instagram as little_satchel. Nervous but needed! Thanks for this. Good luck everyone

Looking forward to participating

I am going to give this a is a busy time of year for me but I so need to make time to art! Not sure if I will post my art, but I will definitely do this…game on!

Sounds exciting

Can’t wait! Looking forward to getting back into the groove again!

Would like to join in,my curiosity of what others are doing grabs my attention

I will give this a go! I’ll be traveling for about a week so may have to take a pause for a few days.

Look forward to opening up to daily Creativity!

I haven’t done this in years, but I have been planning on doing a challenge for myself. I checked to see if you were still doing this. And I’m glad to see that you are!

This is great to start my work for future art show…I need to see what shows up. Please count me in! Thank you.

So looking forward to AEDM! This will be my second year :)

This sounds like a lot of fun. I can’t wait to get started!

I’ll give it a try.

This looks like fun, and perhaps just what I need to get out of this rut.

My third year participating and I can’t wait because this is a reason to get back to the blog, challenge myself while doing another major creative effort, and just have fun. Love this challenge!!!

Excited to participate but have no url

Looking forward to drawing and painting more. Going to teach myself gauche on itty bitty canvases.

This is a long-time favorite creative activity for me! Thank you so much for hosting it, Leah!


I’ve been looking for something like this! I’m in.

I’m in! This will keep me inspired!

Always fun to do. Gets me making art and that is always a great thing this time if year.

I can’t wait to start this. Just what I needed.

that´s a good chance to reactivate my blog of scrap squares:)
once i managed to create daily pieces one year long (2010), so it should be possible to keep up for one month;)

Count me in!

Hi everyone!

Almost forgot to sign up!

Busy month but will do my best. I love the challenge.

I am in!

oh my — I totally forgot about aedm — have participated the last few years — thanks for the reminder leah –

Looking forward!!

Just found this through Teresa Robinson’s twitter feed. Let’s guve it a go.

Hi there! Joining in for the first time. I’ll be experimenting with mixed media in a simple inexpensive notebook, focusing on intuitive expression – and trying to have no expectations about the outcome. I’ll be posting on my instagram: @katerinadbz, if I post at all.

I have just read about this challenge on my blog friend Bleubeard and Elizabeths blog and I look forward to joining in

I only discovered this today! I’ve just completed a 30 day challenge for October where i chose to do a sketchbook page every day. This time i want to do the same but learn to draw and paint figures. I’ll be doing sketches, studies and paintings.

I am going to give this challenge a shot. I am not sure what I will be doing but I am excited to be here!

looking forward to participating again this year! this always jump starts my creativity-

Decided to go ahead give this a shot again this year. It’s been a couple of years since I’ve done it and I certainly need the motivation to be creative again on a regular bases. I probably won’t ‘blog every day but I’ll do my best to be creative.

This sounds like fun!! We are definitely going to participate.

Eager to explore art every single day in one form or another! Thank you for putting together this challenge and including me.

Just saw this on a friends blog and thought I would have a go. Not sure about every day, but will do my best.

Greetings from Finland! Just found this challenge but better late than never, right? Really happy to be part of this. Inktober left me little lonely. I love the community that comes with the challenges.

Hi Leah,
Thank you for continuing to host this wonderful tradition! I am a bit erratic in my posts, but I try to do something creative everyday all year long. I’ll try to share my art and cooking as often as possible. I use my Facebook art page Dolci Studio and my Instagram page @dolcistudio frequently, so I’ll share in those places.

HI there, I am in !

Hi Leah,

Thank you for this wonderful challenge.❤️ My wonderful friend Marga Fripp introduced me to it and I’m so excited to be part of this community! I’m a poet and really out of my depth when it comes to making art, but I hope that my artistic efforts this month will feed into my poetry. It all comes fro the same source, doesn’t it?


What a fabulous site, I was directed over here by Bleubeard & Elizabeth and i’m so glad I pressed that link. Happy to be amongst such creativity.
Creative wishes Tracey x

Jumping in a just a wee bit late to the party… thanks for the inspiration!

Ooh, what a great idea! I’d already decided to make November a month of everyday thankfulness, so this fits in nicely.
Love what you’re doing :-)

I am in… a little late, but this is gonna be fun.

This will be my first year attempting AEDM – am hoping to post on Instagram too – another first – scary! :)

Coming on late but thanks for opportunity!
Just started my Instagram site


Thanks. Fran in Texas
