Thank you for being awesome students! Giveaway below:
For those new to the DOT Drawing Challenge, welcome!
This is a series of free art lessons designed to develop the drops of talent in you. And we are having fun! The main key to learning how to draw, is to draw, but that can be difficult. These lessons are designed to teach you techniques and build your skills while letting go of the need to draw perfectly, and enjoying the process as much as the result. For budding artist, and experienced alike, these lesson will train your eye to see things in new ways.
Just a reminder that anyone can participate in these lessons! You just need a sketchbook and pencil (and maybe a few common household items later on). You don’t have to do them on time, they will always be up!

The challenge lasts for seven weeks, but I will continue to post more lessons after the challenge. Anyone is welcome to join our DOT Challenge Facebook group, where we post results. You will also find the most recent lesson under the Art Lesson tab at the top of the page. You can follow me on Twitter, or at Facebook as well.
Here are a few of the lessons we’ve had so far.
We are also have a featured artist each week. Come get inspired!
Make a request!
I also love requests! Many of these lessons are based on requests from the DOT Drawing Challenge students, so request away. I make a video with each lesson so you can see how to do the lesson.
I promise the lesson will be here tomorrow, but first I wanted to spice things up with another giveaway! This one is going to give you a bit more time to rack up those points.
I have been singing the praises of Carla Sonheim’s Drawing Lab for the Mixed Media Artist so much, I thought I should give one of her books away! It’s chock full of 52 exercises designed to get you drawing, and enjoying the process, while working with the results. This book has transformed the way I create my artwork.
