Weekend Art Challenge – Draw with your non dominant hand

Students Rachel Pesterfield and Priscilla Hocking both suggested that students are challenged to drawing a picture with their non dominant hand. We felt this was a great idea as often using your non-dominant hand to draw something either from a photo or from life, inevitably makes you to draw what you see rather than what you know. 

Students can draw using any medium – pencil, charcoal, ballpoint pen, pen and ink, coloured pencil, paintbrush and paint or digitally with a pencil or their finger etc. They can also draw any subject they would like at any size.

Let us know which hand you drew with – left or right and how you found it! Try not to take this one too seriously, have some fun with it!

To take part, students can post their artwork on our Facebook Group or Email it to us for inclusion.

Start your post with “Weekend Challenge” so we know you would like it featured on our blog.

Please only post new artwork that you have created specifically for the challenge.

The idea of these challenges is to help students improve their skills by drawing, painting and creating regularly. Most of all, have fun!!

For those who are new to our challenges, we post them every Friday, so that students have a chance to pick up their pencils, pens, brushes or tablets to create artwork in their downtime over the weekend.

The results are the posted here on our blog on the following Thursday.

We love it when students add text to go along side the artwork, we will always post it on the blog if included.
