How do you learn to relax, find joy in each day, and become more creative? A Drawing A Day. In January 2017, we launched the Sketchbook Skool A Drawing A Day challenge, a month-long challenge to draw something every day. To make it easier, we came up with a list of daily drawing prompts. That way we’d never run out of ideas for sketches. People liked it so much we kept doing them, as a series of 30 day drawing challenges. And here are the prompts for April:
