August Sketchbook Challenge
TinkerSketch is a daily sketchbook practice that invites you to experiment and play with ideas and materials in a low-stress, fun, and mind-stretching way.
You’ll start each day with a new prompt and it’s up to you to interpret it however you like. For example, if the prompt is “tiny”, you could draw an object with tiny marks, make a small pattern, or paint a picture of small things like snails, sand, or chihuahuas. The possibilities are endless.
