It’s that time of year again! It’s INKtober! Every day for the month of October, students 5th-8th have a homework challenge to create a drawing based upon a word of inspiration. INKtober was started by artist Jake Parker in 2009 and has become more popular every year. Jake wanted to develop his drawing skills and create good working habits.
Inktober is for students to become more comfortable, confident, and creative with drawing. They are to draw for at least 10 minutes a day and can color in their drawings if they choose. They can choose a theme like Halloween or challenge themselves to draw something they find hard, like people or hands. A lot of great work comes from this project every year! You can participate with your kids, too!
