March 1st, 2020, Comments (0)

Happy March! This month's totally optional theme is Music. Perhaps you can make some music of your own, create while listening to music, or make art based on your favorite song! Keep an eye and ear out for music in your day to day life this month and for opportunities to make your own. 

The piece below is called Message of Winter's Arrival and can be prints purchased here. More of my original art and prints can be found at LeahKolidas.com

Creative Every Day 2020

January 28th, 2020, Comments (2)

Sorry to get off to a late start with this post, but I'm still here! I find that I mainly use this blog for Art Every Day Month and I'm sharing my work in other venues these days, but my commitment to daily creativity is still going strong! And I want to give you the opportunity to continue to commit to your own 2020 of creativity. I feel like we need to create now more than ever, so let's get to it. 

Simply comment below to sign up for the Creative Every Day Challenge in 2020. Leave your blog/website/instagram account if you have one, but it's ok if you don't! This is a low pressure challenge, but I hope it's an ongoing reminder to commit yourself to a creative lifestyle. I believe creativity can be found in everything from the mundane, every day activities to the more formal pursuits of art-making. It all feeds into the same well of creativity within you!

There will be a monthly check-in post here on the blog starting next month, but you can also check in anytime on the Facebook group or you can use the #ced2020 hashtag on Twitter or Instagram. You can find me on instagram at https://www.instagram.com/leah_kolidas/ and on Twitter at https://twitter.com/leah_art

I'd love to hear what your creative goals are for 2020. I plan to continue painting (some of my artwork can be seen in my shop: https://www.leahkolidas.com/ ) and work on creating dummies for the children's books I've been working on. 

Here are my totally optional themes for 2020. Feel free to use them, interpret them however you'd like, or ignore them. Up to you! 

January: Goals

February: Love

March: Music

April: Risk

May: Joy

June: Heat

July: Water

August: Animal

September: Beginning

October: Disguise

November: Art Every Day Month

December: Giving

Creative Every Day Challenge: December 2019

December 4th, 2019, Comments (0)

Sorry for the delay this month! Happy December! This month's totally optional theme is Giving. Tis the season! My children were busy making little homemade gifts for each other this afternoon.

If you happen to be looking for a gift for a loved one, consider buying from an artist this holiday season. It's a unique gift and supports a small business owner! My original art and prints can be found at LeahKolidas.com

Hello, all. I can hardly believe that Art Every Day Month is nearly over! As mentioned, I have a 2020 calendar available for pre-sale, which has some art from this month as well as some older pieces I love. If you order by 11/28, I will add a drawing on your birthday or the birthday of your gift recipient. For those who are spending time with loved ones this week, traveling, or staying cozy at home, I wish you a warm, wonderful time filled with good food and good memories.
