Welcome to week five and a new month of Making Art Everyday! How did you do last month? Remember, it’s okay if you didn’t do every prompt. MAE is about making art an “everyday” thing. So if you only drew once or twice, celebrate those wins! If your goal is to draw more this month, I’ve got some exciting things planned to help you along your art-making journey!
About this month’s theme: This month will be dedicated to drawing all types of animals! We’ll practice learning how to draw from memory – which is a learned skill that involves using lots of reference photos in the beginning.
This tutorial will give you the foundation to draw a subject in your own stylized way. You’ll learn how to draw a bear and it will provide you with a method to draw other animals too! It’s the perfect way to jump into this month.
If bears aren’t really your thing, try drawing this cute little squirrel. I’ve made a short 60 second video that shows you my step-by-step process for drawing this squirrel.
We’ve got a Facebook group just for participants of Making Art Everyday and all things Bardot Brush! Come join our group of supportive artists of all skill levels, share your work, ask questions, and be a part of the community!
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.
