#Inktober, the annual month long art challenge created by artist Jake Parker is on its way – and the environment themed “Prompt List” has been revealed.
Here’s how anyone – no matter their skill level – can take part…
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it on any social media account you want or just post it on your refrigerator. The point is to share your art with someone
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2019
#Inktober is focused on improving skill and developing positive drawing habits. Every day for the month of October anyone participating in the Inktober challenge creates an ink drawing and posts it online. Remember to use the hashtags #inktober and #inktober2018 if you want your art to be seen by everyone.
Everything will be under the theme of ‘environment’, so we’re expecting some deserved savaging of the multicorps, as well as amazing wildlife art and more…
