February art challenge

I’ve been seeing all of these monthly challenges everywhere. Ranging from photography and drawing, to cleaning and organizing. Well, I decided to create one myself, to get myself motivated to create more! So, I’m a little late on this post, and I now realize it’s a lot harder to create , what I can only relate to as a lesson plan (I feel your pain Staci!) but here it is! Any followers want to join in, please do! If you post anything on Instagram or Twitter please #februaryartchallenge! Maybe we could inspire each other to be more creative!
Without further ado, here’s the list:

1. Create a character sketch
2. Draw your favorite comic book character
3. Paint an object using water colors
4. Write a short poem
5. Take a picture outside of your home
6. Draw something from nature
7. Use mixed media to describe a feeling
8. Edit a picture in an interesting way
9. Draw your character from day 1
10. Write a short story
11. Create a painting using abstract shapes
12. Document your day with pictures
13. Knit/crochet an hour project
14. Create a self portrait using pin and ink
15. Share a memory/ story
16. Use color pencils to illustrate and object in your home
17. Sketch a body part
18. Take a picture of something that makes you happy
19. Write a haiku
20. Create a print using one of your sketches
21. Paint a small still life using acrylics
22. Make a collage using mixed media
23. Create a drawing, shading the negative space
24. Knit/crochet another small project
25. Write a short story
26. Take a picture of something that looks abstract
27. Create a cover for your character using sketchbook express (use whatever format that is comfortable to you, but this program comes highly recommended by Staci!)
28. Write about your favorite project

You can combine a lot of the projects if you’d like. I’ve been inspired a lot by comics lately, so a lot of the character building for me will be more comic based, but it’s completely up to you! Use this to develop your own thing!
Try to keep it simple, I’m thinking things that will take only a couple of hours to complete. If it doesn’t get completed, don’t stress over it! This is to get the creative juices flowing! It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Have fun! Leave us feed back on how you like it!
