The first day of November marks the beginning of the Art Every Day Month challenge. My pal Leah Piken Kolidas started this online challenge seven years ago and now more than 190 have joined this creative community! I’ve been participating for the past two years. I love the structure and accountability and enjoy connecting with so many kindred spirits.
This year I’m taking it easy on myself and trying something a little different. I intend to make art every day, but won’t be posting daily. I plan to use this tiny 3″x3″ book that I picked up while I was at the Squam Art Fair with Leah, Melba and Mindy back in September. When I saw this adorable mini journal, I figured it would be the perfect companion to invite in a little creating each day. Nothing big or time-consuming. Just a quick doodle.
Since I’m juggling a lot this month, my challenge will simply be to stay committed to my small creative practice. Through my intuitive painting training I’m learning to let go of the outcome and just be with the process, so I look forward to seeing what unfolds this year!
Oh and if you’re wanting a little extra guidance during the challenge, this year Leah put together an Art Every Day Month Survival Guide which looks really awesome!
