This summer, Skillshare held a Drawing & Doodles contest to encourage our community to explore, experiment, and make something joyful! We thought it would be a great opportunity to celebrate the inspiring creating we see everyday at Skillshare.
We know there are a lot of talented people in this community, but the quality of the work still blew our minds. We received nearly 700 beautiful submissions from all over the world!
Contestants were tasked with submitting a project to one of 10 classes. Class topics included botanical line drawing, zine-making, food illustration, and more. Multiple entries were okay, as long as they were posted during the contest period.
A panel of Top Teacher judges chose our winners based on five criteria: composition, originality, technical execution, visual appeal, and impact. The following projects are the best of the best and we are so excited to share them!
