One of my personal New Year’s resolutions was to practice basic creative fundamentals: drawing, painting, etc. I have totally failed to do so on a regular basis in the past and I think of where I could be if I had (just like the piano. Gah! Why are moms always right when they drill practicing into your brains?!). With our limited time, sometimes “practicing” is just as easy as drawing one thing a day. Just one thing! So, I was thrilled to partner with Creativebug to kick myself into gear where artist Pam Garrison is leading a drawing challenge for the month of March called 31 Things to Draw. Tune in every day for a daily prompt teaching us one thing to draw. To keep ourselves accountable, she encourages us to use the hashtag #CBDrawADay where we can post our drawings. They did a drawing challenge for the month of January and you can see all 21,000 images of people practicing. It’s super inspiring!
I’ll be doing the challenge right alongside you. Find out more about the challenge below!
Take a look at their page to see the daily prompts. Some of them include house plants, sewing notions, candy…just some of my favorite things. It’s simple enough that it keeps me motivated and not overwhelmed that I think I can accomplish it that day. Just working on these drawings in anticipation of the challenge was a good reminder to get going and it was SO freeing. I turned off my phone and computer and felt so good.
SO, put it on you calendars! March 1st! I’ll be taking the challenge too so feel free to check in for some motivating words half way through March and at the end where we recap our experience here on the blog and check in on Instagram for more constant updates.
Go to Creativebug to sign up (just $4.95 a month for ALL the classes!)
