During April 2020 I am running a special ‘At Home in April’ 30 Day sketchbook Challenge.
This page lists all of the challenge prompts and the accompanying videos so that you can join in and follow the 30 days in your own time… The videos can also be found on my YouTube Channel HERE.
Full information about the challenge can be found here.
About The Challenge
The ‘At Home in April’ 30-Day Sketchbook Challenge is a commitment to sketch, draw or do something creative for all 30 days of April. Each day I will email (and post in the Facebook group) a sketching prompt for you to respond to. Whether you draw for 30 seconds, 30 minutes or even several hours, it doesn’t matter. Whether you are a beginner to drawing, a stay-at-home family or even a professional artist, it doesn’t matter. The aim is just to make sketching and creativity a fun part of your day that you all look forward to as the month goes past.
