Join in on Our 31-Day Drawing Challenge and WIN!

Looking to take your drawing to the next level? Need an excuse to break out your pencils, pens or markers? Join us for the Craftsy 31-Day Drawing Challenge for the month of August!

31-Day Drawing Challenge

We've picked a word or phrase inspired by nature for each day of the month. Challenge yourself to get outside and put your pencils (or pens, markers, paints or whatever media you choose) to work every day this month!

Pin this, print this or share it on Facebook to get all of your friends in on the action!

August Drawing Challenge

While the prompts were inspired by nature and the great outdoors, many of them are open to interpretation. (Don't have mountains in your backyard for inspiration? A mountain of laundry works, too!) Don't hold back; just trust your creativity and get drawing.

Bonus: Share your drawings and win!

We can't wait to see what you're inspired to create from these prompts. We’ll be keeping an eye on our projects page to see your progress throughout the month — and one lucky artist will win a Craftsy Mystery Box prize just for participating.

You will be entered for a chance to win whether you complete the whole challenge or just a few days.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR UPLOADING YOUR PHOTOS:

  • STEP 1: Click the Submit Photo button below.
  • STEP 2: Log in to your Craftsy account (or create a new account — it’s easy and free!)
  • STEP 3: Title your upload and include “#AugustDrawingChallenge” and the day or theme (IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PUT “#AugustDrawingChallenge” IN THE TITLE OF YOUR PROJECT. That way, we’ll know it’s a submission for the contest!)
  • STEP 4: Add some further info about your photo.
  • STEP 5: Upload a photo or scan of your drawing (or drawings). That’s it!
Submit Your Art »

We’ll be looking at submissions on September 1, 2015, and will pick a winner at random!

We are only able to send prizes to the U.S. and Canada due to some legal restrictions, but you are more than welcome to participate and show off your artwork even if you live outside these countries!

For those of you who are wondering:
“You will be entered for a chance to win whether you complete the whole challenge or just a few days.”
Is written above the submit image button. I didn’t see it at first either.

Can we use stock photos to draw from? I ask because what if it doesn’t rain before the contest ends? or you don’t live near a prairie? Things like that.

Okay! All of August is done! Some of them even turned out well! (Others… need more practice and some of the classes on my Wish List!) What’s next for September!?!??! 🙂 🙂 🙂 How do we know who the winner is? 🙂

So who won? I’ve been waiting for an announcement….certainly should have been done by today. Very disheartening to have this delay.
