Over 10 years ago Leah Piken Kolidas launched a wonderful project called Art Every Day Month. Each November artists from all over the world gather at Leah´s website Creative Every Day to share what they are doing.
Inspired by Nanowrimo, Art Every Day Month was created as a challenge to encourage people to make something every day to foster more creativity, so if you make just one piece of art per week or just one for the whole month, that’s fine. The idea is to bring more creativity into your life, not to make you feel overwhelmed, pressured or guilt-stricken. Art is also loosely defined here. in the sense of anything creative, whether that be painting, drawing, knitting, sewing, cooking, decorating, writing, photography, clay, jewelry-making or whatever!
If you use Twitter or Instagram you can tag your work with #aedm2014 to connect with others doing the challenge. Leah thinks it’s helpful (and fun) to share your creations, even if it feels a little scary at first, but it’s not required, so do what feels best for you! Take some time to stop in and visit some of the other bloggers who are participating and help cheer them on. There will be a Mr. Linky widget posted daily at Leah´s blog where people can leave a link to their blog posts.
