The Art Challenge
Welcome everyone to the 30 day art challenge!
So here is a new chapter in another book of promises I am probably going to kick myself for making. This time though, it is actually to a sort of purpose. I have been in a bit of a funk lately. Due to events in both my professional and personal life, I find my confidence is a little shaken, and as a result I am having an exceedingly difficult time sticking to timelines and finishing projects. Now, I won’t get in to details about that because I don’t want my blog to be about negative things, but I do want to figure out a way to turn things around and get the creative juices flowing again.
Part one of my game plan was to begin making Let’s Plays in order to encourage myself to be more open and expressive. I am fairly introverted, so this was a big deal for me. Now that I am getting comfortable with that it is time to move on to step two.
Part two is to make art for myself again and maybe actually enjoy myself. Thus I came up with the idea for my personal 30 day art challenge.
The challenge goes as thus: Make at least one piece of art every day for 30 days.
Now keep in mind that my degree is technically in craft and design, so these art pieces may not necessarily be drawing and painting. Art projects for me may also include needle craft, sculpting, digital painting and other activities. Some days might be more labor intensive than others depending on my schedule, but the point is to make something.
This list will be random, using inspiration from other 30 day challenge lists on the internet, but with a bit of a twist to make it my own. Many of these challenges will, of course, be weird, geeky or creepy. I have to stay true to myself!
If anyone is reading and wants to join in the challenge with me feel free! Please comment, tag or tweet me with your projects. I would really love to see them!
