Week twenty-six

Coming in July…Kid’s Month!

I’ve been planning this for MONTHS now, and I’m so excited to announce what is coming for Making Art Everyday in July…Kid’s Month!

Kids Month is for kids, kids-at-heart, and for folks interested in making art for kids. I’ve got so much fun stuff planned: kid-inspired drawing prompts, kid’s Procreate tutorials, coloring pages, and much more! Parents, if your kiddos are interested in learning about Procreate or about making art in general, they will love joining Making Art Everyday next month. Kid’s month will start July 5th – more details to come!

A huge thank you to all the Dads and amazing father figures out there. Also a huge Happy Birthday today to the father of my kiddos, my husband Geoff. Thank you for always being there for me, Bear, Ellie, and Alfie. Your love and support means everything to us. I am so happy to not only celebrate you as a father but today we celebrate you and your birth too.


June's Theme:


Week 26: Outdoor Fun

This week’s prompts are all about fun outdoor activities. These prompts are a little less specific and, therefore, very much open to interpretation. There is also a wide range of how detailed or involved your art piece for that prompt could be.

Let’s take the “backyard bbq” prompt, for example. You could draw your favorite barbeque food, or an actual barbeque with meat or veggies on the grill, you could add a character doing the cooking, or you could draw a whole scene with a backyard and a party going on! It’s 100% up to you how much you want to put into it, and as always, there is never a wrong way to make art!

And as another reminder, if you are really getting into one of the prompts and you want to spend several days working on it while skipping the others, do that! The idea is to spend time each day (or as often as possible) making art, not to complete all the prompts. Have fun!

And if you are interested in learning how to draw scenes, you should check out my Scene School series! I break down putting together a scene into small, manageable parts and teach you a structure for building a scene, piece-by-piece.

This Week's Tutorial

Live Tutorial! DATE at TIME PST


The best place to catch the live stream is on the Bardot Brush YouTube Channel. Don’t forget: You can watch or re-watch the previous livestreams on my tutorials page on Bardot Brush!

On Friday, I hosted a live tutorial all about how to draw a bicycle! It’s perfect for Monday’s drawing prompt, “bike ride.” I even show you how to animate your bike illustration to make it look like it’s moving (it’s easier than you think!)


This Month's Progress Tracker

You can always download the current month’s Progress Tracker at bardotbrush.com/progress

(its a .Procreate file, so you can keep track of your progress right in Procreate!)

You’ll find instructions about how to use the Tracker at the link above. I even made you a star stamp brush for you to use! It’s my Procreate version of a gold star sticker.
