As I’ve been thinking about this new year ahead, the phrase “Share Your World” keeps coming back to me as a kind of unofficial theme — and having now seen your sketches, I believe in that theme even more.
Moment Sketchers, it’s that time again — our 2018 monthly sketching challenge is about to begin! I can’t wait to see what moments, stories, and sketches await our amazing global community of artists this year.
It is this image of beauty and reflection that I will be carrying with me into the start of 2018, having left ‘the lived’ of this year behind — and I hope that this picture, and Alejandra’s timely words, hold inspiration for you as well.
In an age when everyday moments are far too fleeting, I’m thrilled to announce a new retreat that invites you to slow down and be more present in your life — through the power of creativity, movement, and nature.
Just like alchemy turns ordinary metal into gold, sketching can transform life’s ephemeral moments into lasting, eternal memories — I’ve come to call this extraordinary process the alchemy of moments.
As I look ahead to our December sketching challenge, an idea recently popped into my head: to see just how many artists we can bring together at one time for our final sketching challenge of the year.
My hope is that this special Moment Sketchers holiday gift guide will help you bring even more joy and color to your friends and family this year, while also supporting the incredibly talented artists in our community!
I would love for our first Moment Sketchers manifesto to be something that we all create together and can then share with others, conveying the heart, goals, and vision of our community in a single image.
Our November Moment Sketchers challenge brought two very different but equally colorful seasons together, and resulted in a collection of sketches bursting with bright, vivid color — thank you for taking part!
