April Art Challenge: Spring Things

What is the April Art Challenge: Spring Things?

Run by Doodlewash, this April art challenge is all about Spring things! This challenge encourages participants to step out of their comfort zones, try new techniques and have fun by taking part in this challenge running through the month of April.

Put time aside every day during the month to be creative! The theme itself symbolizes new beginnings, growth and rejuvenation. By following the official April Art Challenge: Prompt List April Art Challenge, you’ll be given daily prompts to draw inspiration from!

Are there any rules?

There are no rules for this challenge other than to keep the daily painting habit alive by creating something new every day during the month of April.
Another rule is to take part in the challenge in a way that you enjoy most.

What Materials Do I Need?

For this challenge you’ll need some paper or a sketchbook and maybe some watercolours.  Because this challenge is affiliated with the World Watercolour Group, you’re encouraged to use watercolours in your daily pieces. You might want to mix mediums with pens, pencils or markers but that’s completely up to you.

Join the community!

If you decide to take part in the challenge and use watercolours, why not share your work online to share with fellow creatives? Make sure to use the hashtag #worldwatercolorgroup. By doing so, other creatives who have taken part in the challenge can see what you’ve created, and you can see theirs too!
