Join me in a 52 week art challenge!

52 week art challenge

I'm starting a 52 week art challenge and am inviting you to join me!

With the objective to build a better portfolio, the challenge is to create one new piece of art each week. Each month will have a different theme, so that at the end of the year we'll all have 12 new collections with a total of 52 new pieces. Sounds pretty good, right? It also sounds extremely possible to me. And that's the point. It has to be reasonable, otherwise when life gets hectic, it won't get done. So spend as little or as much time as you can on these, just make sure it fits your schedule. 

I'll be posting my art here and also on Instagram every Friday. Follow along with me @jaymesloan 

To join the challenge, all you need to do it create your art and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #spankysartparty so that we can all see what everyone is creating. That hashtag requires some explaining, but that is a story for another day. So for now, let's just run with it. 

Remember, create a piece that's true to you. Let your imagination run wild. You can draw anything you want within each theme. And, most importantly, think about each month as a collection so that at the end of the month, you're art has a cohesive look to it. Pinterest is an excellent place to get some inspiration.
