Getting ready for Inktober 2019!


It’s still the dog days of summer, but Inktober will be here before you know it!

For those of you who are new to Inktober, it's an art challenge started by Jake Parker, one of the founders of SVSLearn. Every year, artists all over the world take on the challenge of making an ink drawing every day for the entire month of October. That's 31 drawings in 31 days! The goal is to improve your drawing skills and develop positive drawing habits.

We are, of course, big proponents of Inktober 🖤 By taking the challenge, you can gain so much as an artist. It challenges you to:

  • commit to a goal

  • produce work consistently

  • hold yourself publicly accountable

  • push your creative limits, and

  • get out of your comfort zone.

But even if you don’t make it all the way through, you can still get a lot out of it!

We really hope our members will take the challenge this year, so we have all sorts of things planned for Inktober 2019! We can’t get into all the details just yet, but here’s a sneak preview of what’s to come:

  • a new inking video by Jake!

  • a second new inking video, by an artist whose identity we are not at liberty to disclose yet 😉

  • an Inktober edition of our monthly art contest, plus live critiques of the contest entries!

  • social media love! We love seeing all the up and coming artists out there and we want to promote you! Use #svslearn or @svslearn on Instagram for a chance to be featured ⭐️

  • giveaways on Instagram!

And more! Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to get all the updates 😁

Are you going to do Inktober this year??

PS - For those of you who want to do the official 2019 prompt list, it will be released September 1!
