Project Description

For the class project, you'll be creating one drawing using a prompt from whichever art challenge you're most interested in. Step by step, you'll be going through the different steps of the process I use when faced with an uninspiring prompt, to get your creative juices flowing and reconnect with the creativity inside you!

In the project section, please share every part of the process, not just the result because that is what this class is about — celebrating the process and reminding each other that art is about the journey, not the destination. :) 

As starting points for the class, here are a few art challenges you might want to check out:
