Customizing Your Next Creative Challenge

Workshop

For artists, writers, and coders

Creative challenges offer a themed art event to learn new skills, level up the ones you have, and have some fun along the way.

In this class I'll teach you to craft your own custom approach to creative challenges. Whether it's a popular public one (Inktober, NaNoWriMo, Global Game Jam, 24 Hour Comic Day) or one of your own creation. Many art discipline groups have adopted creative challenges as events to celebrate and practice. Whether you're making video games or writing a book, or making comics illustrating scenes, drawing characters, journaling, podcasting, the list goes on.
