We have so many fun and amazing things planned for the Living Studio but one thing we wanted to start ASAP was a weekly Friday prompt.

Each Friday you will get an art quote and a printable prompt that hopefully will get you motivated to get your supplies out over the weekend and throughout the week.

We will share supply links, inspiring artist stories and art that goes along with the prompt.

I am only able to teach at 1-2 Living Studio retreats a year and not everyone is able to join me for an in person workshop.

I am hoping this is a fun way for us to connect each week.

My hope is that you will connect with us through our free Living Studio video series online, join the Living Studio Facebook page and share your art and start connecting with other members in your area to get out of your studio and creating art in the studio of your town, parks, cafes and museums.

Welcome to The Living Studio Friday Prompt!

Don’t limit yourself to sketching just with a pencil.  You can quickly “sketch” with almost any medium and find new ways to express yourself through your art.

Ink is one of my favorite ways to sketch and also one of my favorite tools to use with graphite, charcoal and paint.

Below I am sharing some of my favorite art tools but feel free to start with anything and just have fun.

Keep it simple and don’t ever think that buying more supplies equals making art. Make art. Have fun. Practice with what you have.

(I love the sephia, black and grey)

Don’t be afraid to experiment with the ink by adding water, gesso, charcoal and paint.

I have created a Pinterest board for more Ink Works inspiration.

I hope the video below will not only inspire you but also encourage you to take your ink with you anywhere you go.
