ARTventurers Thirty Day Drawing Challenge

During the first and third lockdowns, we’ve been running a thirty day drawing challenge over on Facebook.
The aim of the drawing challenge is not only to introduce a daily dose of creativity (which we all need right now!) but also to show our little artists that art can be quick, simple and fun too – without the need for expensive materials and resources – and to get them trying to draw different things and look at objects, people and places in different ways.
We’ve loved seeing all of the different drawings that our artists have produced – and as a big WELL done for completing the challenge you can find a link below to download your certificate of completion! Just print, add your name – and we’d love to see a photo of you with it if you’d like to share on our social!
If you haven’t taken part in the challenge yet, don’t worry! Here’s a summary of the daily drawing tasks and you can find all of the daily posts on social media with our guidance notes using the hashtag #artventurersdrawingchallenge

Here’s your certificate for completing the challenge – you can download the PDF here

Santa’s Beard Christmas Countdown Advent Calendar

Santa’s Beard Christmas Countdown Advent Calendar

Lots of people have been asking us to share our little Christmas countdown printable and so here it is! We’ve been using this in classes with our little ARTventurers for nearly ten years now and it’s always a big hit!

You can use the printable as it is, cut and mount it, get your little artist to decorate it….whatever you like! Then each day in December your child can stick a piece of cotton wool onto Santa’s beard in the right place – and when his beard is full you’ll know he’s coming that night!

You can grab a printable PDF version HERE

Have fun using it, feel free to share. And look forward to seeing lots of you joining in the festive creative fun as part of The Big Neighbourhood Winter Windowland too!
