Some of the best art challenges on IG

Sometimes its hard to stay on track with daily art practice, so you might find these art challenges the perfect support to help you stay motivated. These groups of artists also serve to help you out of an artist block, as there is encouragement. And yes, the competitive streak gets sparked: not against each other but rather – Can you do a drawing a day for 30 days?

Yes we can… or not. Either way, it’s okay, because if you keep trying for the alloted time you will see progress.

Below I listed some of the more popular as well as some random art challenges that might just help you to get what you need: inspiration, motivation, exposure or just plain old fun? Of course, that’s not even the tip of the iceberg, but it gets you started.

Now check them out on IG and let us know in the comments if you find other artchallenges worth mentioning!
