Drawing skills are important for all artists.   Whether you illustrate like Dora or create large abstracts, keeping a sketchbook can lead to some interesting and inspirational ideas.

This year, we are doing our 2nd 30 day drawing challenge.  If you decide you need to do all 30 drawings in one day go for it, work in the way that makes you happy but don’t post any images before their scheduled day. That is the only rule.  If you scan your work into the computer and animate it or do something cool like collaging your work with photos, I will be happy to share what you’ve created.  If you do spontaneous five minute sketches, I will also happily share your work.  All work shared must be the work of the artist (or their children) and you must give me permission to use the photograph on the website or I will not post it.

In July we will celebrate the end of this challenge and images from the challenge will be exhibited at a the Chilli gallery in Munich, Germany.

All posting of images are done on our closed Munich Artists Facebook group and on Instagram. Please use the hashtags #munichartists and #30daychallenge on Facebook and Instagram and I will find you.
