Weekend Art Challenge – 5 Minute Sketch

Welcome to this weekend’s art challenge! In this challenge we would like you to time yourself and create a 5 minute sketch. It can be of any subject and can be as large or small as you would like. You can draw it in your sketchbook or if you preferer creating it digitally on your tablet, the choice in yours. Lets see what you can come up with and have fun. Be honest though.. set that timer on your phone or watch!

Here is an example of a 5 minute sketch by artist K.A Renninger

All students can take part and they can post their artwork on our main Facebook Group to share with fellow students.

  1. When should we send in our artwork if we want it to be featured in the Thursday post? Do we have to send it over the weekend or can we send in a couple of days before Thursday, like Tuesday?
