12th Annual ARTiculations FILL’ER UP Sketchbook Challenge
MARCH 1ST TO 31ST, 2023

Coming together in Art making solidarity to get you through the winter slump by challenging YOU to fill up an old sketchbook or start a new one!

Registration is now closed.

During the month of March, ARTiculations wants to challenge you to do one creative thing a day in your sketchbook. Start sketching. Start painting. Start writing. Start making time for yourself to do anything that YOU choose to be your creative outlet.  And do it every day. Every. Day. This is open to all ages, abilities, ideas and interpretations.

Why sign up?

By signing up, you are joining a community of Sketchbook Challengers that have all come together in Art making solidarity to get through the winter slump! This is an independent-but-with-accountability-and-motivation challenge for you to complete on your own time.

Independant-But-With-Accountability-And-Motivation Whaaat?

To keep you motivated throughout the month, we will be sending you weekly newsletters filled with sketchbook prompts, thoughts on creative practice, cool art materials and inspirational spotlights on co-challengers work! We also host 6 virtual sketchbook meetups throughout the month where you can connect with your fellow challengers to work on your challenge.

Craving more connection and engagement to stay on track?

Once registered, you can join our private online Fill’er Up Sketchbook Challenge Community Group where we can stay in touch, share progress and generally just cheer each other on!

Be part of our group art exhibition and share your month!

Regardless of how many pages you fill, you are automatically included in the FILL’ER UP Group Exhibition, which takes place April 9 - June 7, 2022 in our Junction Meets Project Space at ARTiculations Art Supply.
