Inktober 2018

IT'S OCTOBER!  Did you need a reminder?  With this consistent rainy, cloudy and cooler weather, I can't imagine you did.

For some artists and their calendars, October means Inktober.  Artists from around the world participate.  Inktober was started in 2009 and developed by Jake Parker who wanted to improve his own "inking" skills while developing positive drawing habits.  Now Inktober has become a sketchbook phenomenon.  By the way, Parker also illustrates children's books.

I thought if there were some days some younger artists might enjoy sitting down and working on some of those empty sketchbook pages (from all those previous visits to Mia), this might be a great framework with which to begin!

Here are Parker's prompts for this October 2018:

Of course ANY drawing material will do!  I've also included Tinkerlab's drawing prompts for the month.  It's just as acceptable to play along with Inktober's challenge by using these prompts as a reference.  I usually reference Tinkerlab's monthly prompts for our journal entries during Summer Camps.

Of course, if you or your children decide to play along and you'd like to share, I'd love to receive!
Happy ART Making!
