COME JOIN US!!!! I joined a Daily Art challenge on Facebook for the month of June. I didn’t think I would last a week, and I had *many* good excuses to give up… But I didn’t. Some days it was bloody hard, but more often, it gave me the impetus and the energy to keep going. I surpassed all my expectations and continue to work daily.
But, I miss the connection, the challenge, the pushing myself daily… And so, I’m starting a new challenge. A Weekday Art challenge: Mon-Fri every week, starting next Monday, 21st of July. Post your work to my Facebook page; and for all the participants, I’m starting a page specifically for the challenge, so we can encourage, enjoy and connect with the work we produce and each other.
Why not join us?! A two minute sketch daily will improve your drawing skills no end; a little colour study will teach you so much: the emphasis is on DOING, doesn’t matter what, just that we DO daily. It will start as a small snowball and become an avalanche

I won’t join in but I think it’s a fabulous idea and your page is a great place to host it. I was really inspired as a spectator of the efforts in the previous challenge you did so will be very happy to see more.
I am so glad your’re doing this! I plan to commit to one day a week if that’s ok? The experience of the June challenge was life changing, worth the effort. I want to keep it in my life even with the demands of completing a novel! I urge anyone reading to not think but just sign up! You will never regret it! Plus Emily is the best of mentors, cool, calm, encouraging, genuine, what more would you want?
Oh, I so want to join you! I recently did the creative bug Lisa Congdon and loved it. I am hopeless at ‘every day for a month’ things and my parents arrive on Monday, but I’m going to try! d x
Great idea! I was hoping you’d do something like this! Really enjoyed the June challenge, planning to sign up with a few to just one day a week – only because I have to focus on my book – hope that’s ok? I can’t think of a better host 🙂
Dee, I had the maddest month too, but really pushed myself and while some days were impossible(just took a photo!), others I surpassed my expectations completely. Oh DO join us! (If you are on FB, will you join the page too?)
Yes, absolutely. I think it’s the commitment and following through that’s most important: making yourself “show up” xx
Joanna, I didn’t want to bug you to make you join 🙂 but we’ll be here should you feel left out and want to jump aboard 😉 😉
You left a lovely comment on my blog a while back, my birth story (http://deeagnew.blogspot.com.es) thank you for taking the time out to read it and comment it. I can’t join in on the challenge but I will be following!
I really loved seeing you post your daily projects and think this is a wonderful idea. I won’t join in but will be follow on FB and maybe another time I will join!
