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!
