Making Art Everyday is a series of daily, weekly, and monthly prompts and challenges to help you overcome creative fears and develop your art-making practice. Every month, we will feature a new theme that will allow you to hone a set of skills, practice drawing something specific, or complete a project. Participation is free! Join thousands of participants worldwide who are making art right alongside you. Learn More about MAE!

May's Theme: Play Time

Pick the path that works for you. Choose to work on the monthly project, draw the daily prompts, or accomplish the weekly goal.

Monthly Project

Make Your Own Greeting Card Design

Making your own greeting cards is a really fun way to use your art in the real world. They also make excellent gifts! You can make single cards for a special occasion, or you can mass produce your cards and sell them online. Whatever you choose to do, creating art for greeting cards is a really satisfying experience!
