Linda and I were chatting today, about how many months I’d been doing an at-least-12 sketch Demonstration Collection (18!) and thinking up new and fun ways to entice you to join in and get that fabulous ‘I painted that!’ feeling for yourself.
Our lives have changed so much in recent times. For many of us, it’s been a wonderful time to reconnect to our creativity, finding ways to fit art, craft and hobbies into our lives. I hope this challenge encourages you to make time for a bit of Art Fitness.
For the month of November, 2021, I’ll be posting on Instagram to invite you to share your #artfitworkout sketchbook pages. Just seeing that someone else can do it, might inspire one of your friends to pick up a pencil or brush!
How to get involved
Sign up for access to the #artfitworkout Demonstration Collection. There are 4 x15 minute projects there already and this will grow to at least 14 during the month.
Check the hashtag #artfitworkout to see what others are drawing and follow the hashtag to keep up to date.
Share your favourite #artfitworkout sketchbook pages, by posting about them in November, on your public Instagram account. Use the hashtag #artfitworkout in your post so others can find your drawing.
Please be sure to let your friends know so they can join us!
Giveaway and Prizes
There’s also a giveaway to celebrate this challenge. Make sure you’re following me on Instagram to see my giveaway post. This bundle of inspiration will be heading home to one lucky winner drawn on Sunday 7 November.
Let’s get Art Fit!
I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, but I love the challenge of painting or sketching something for May the Fourth Be With You day each year, and seeing the progress in my art.
This year I surprised myself with this sketch, and I can honestly say I have NEVER sketched C-3PO or R2-D2 before – and they’re busy characters! That’s the main reason I decided to sketch upside down – so that I was only looking at the shapes and not letting my mind get in the way by thinking of arms and legs, etc. I really recommend having a go at drawing this way!
