I'm hosting a 30 day art challenge!* As you know, I'm all about COMMUNITY + encouraging the spirit of creativity in our lifestyles.
This challenge is for anyone who wants to slosh paint around, challenge themselves creatively + surround themselves with other cool artists.
We have all experienced the joy of creating + sharing art with others, so let's spread the inspiration around! I created this challenge, in the hope, that you'll discover new ways to make your BOLD marks on the world while inspiring each other to share our work more often.

Here are the details:
1. choose a journal you ENJOY working in or...make one!
I am altering a children's board book. (Right now, I'm illustrating the cover. I'll be sure to link you to it once it's finished!)
Sneak peek: It's filled with multiple papers + fun textures: phone book paper, canvas sheets + 300lb. watercolor paper. (YUM! My mouth just watered!)
Think about choosing a journal with more than 30 pages.
I'm known to get carried away with a certain technique + spin off doing way more than intended ;-) I hope to continue this exercise long after the 30 day challenge has ended.
MORE PAGES = MORE FUN, right?!
2. set a TIMER
Choose whatever time works for you. I wish I could art all day, but, ya know...LIFE happens + I need to make sure I feed myself. LOL!
|Automatically DOWNLOAD THE LIST OF PROMPTS HERE for yourself + a friend. It's FREE!|
3. SHARE the challenge!
Spread the word + get your art homies involved. There's enough inspiration for everybody!
I will be sharing my challenge pages on my Instagram @MarticeSmithArt + blog.
