Do you struggle with...

...drawing every day?

...knowing what to draw?

...getting bored?

We can help!

The most common thing I hear from artists who don’t draw consistently is that they just don’t know what to draw each day. They sit down with the intention of drawing, but the blank page just stares at them. What to possibly fill it with?

Here’s my secret weapon to drawing combating this problem: joining a drawing challenge! I’ve been running my own drawing challenge, #MightCouldDrawToday since 2016. We have artists from all over the world and together, we’ve made over 17,000 new pieces of art!

Praise for #MightCouldDrawToday

"This week marks week 53 of drawing MightCouldDrawToday Themes. I have been drawing and posting almost every day to either MCDT. Joining MCDT, I ended up completing six sketchbooks and starting three more. If I hadn't, I might have completed one or two sketchbooks. So, here's to dedicating myself to another 52 weeks of drawing daily!"

Knowing there were other people drawing everyday gave me the push I needed (plus I loved your prompts)!

"I feel like I can stay on course, because there are communities like the one you've created through Might Could Draw Today."

Miranda M.

"Christine, I stumbled upon your drawing challenge about 10 days ago, a few days after I decided I wanted to draw everyday starting this year. I’ve already learned so much after this first week and am excited to continuing learning, challenging myself, and becoming a better artist."

Lauren L.

"I wanted to take a minute to share how your weekly prompts and the group of artists you have brought together are such a blessing. You are changing lives in positive ways. Being part of "might could" has given me a purpose, an assignment, and the opportunity to show/see the groups take on the prompt. Everyone is so supportive regardless of skill level or creativity. Truly it is a supportive community that is led by a nurturing, uplifting mentor. I want to thank for the positive influence you have been in my art journey. Continue to paint the world with your brush."

How MCDT Helps

#MightCouldDrawToday works for three reasons:

1. We've given you constraints

Now when you sit down to draw, you won’t be as confused or overwhelmed about what to draw. You’ll have a set of limitations to work within and a direction to follow. These guidelines help to jumpstart new ideas by narrowing down the options, rather than sitting down to a blank page with limitless possibilities.

2. We're sharing our art for accountability

When you join our drawing challenge online and use our hashtag, you’ve declared your intentions of drawing with us to the internet. This extra layer of accountability will be a boost of motivation for you to draw each day.

3. We offer support and encouragement.

Sharing art can be a scary at first, but our MCDT community is extremely  nurturing, inspiring, and supportive. You can create that environment too by choosing which groups you join and who you follow. Join a positive and open creative community, and their feedback and encouragement will help keep you motivated.

Consistency, Not Perfection

Here at Might Could, we aim to draw every day, but sometimes life gets in the way. Maybe we didn’t draw yesterday. Ok, so what? That was yesterday, and today is today. We can’t let one slip up bring this whole thing crashing down.

It’s ok. No one is perfect, and we all make mistakes. Consistency is what we’re really aiming for, and we can keep it up by forgetting the tiny missteps to focus on the big picture. We can’t go back and change yesterday. But today is a new day with fresh promise and the opportunity to bounce back. We might could draw today.
