Inktober 2019

1st October 2019

What is Inktober?

Ink + October = Inktober
Inktober is a month long art challenge held during the month of October every year. Anyone can get involved no matter there age or ability. The main aim of Inktober is to improve art skills, develop a good drawing habit and have some fun along the way.
Participants share their creations online every day via their social media channels. It’s a great way to show others what you’ve been doing, how you’re improving and a chance to bask in those double taps and comments of encouragement!

Inktober Rules

Heres what to do:

  1. Make a drawing using any form of ink, it can be anything from a quick doodle to an elaborate masterpiece
  2. Post it to social media
  3. Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2019 along with our hashtag #howimakearthappen* Also, why not tag us in your post @broadcanvasart to make sure we don't miss it.
  4. Repeat. The challenge is to keep it going throughout the whole of October!
