Create a drawing of the human face every day for 30 days.
Each day of the challenge, you'll get an inspiring reference photo and a video drawing lesson from one of six extraordinary teachers. Watch the lesson, put it into practice by drawing the photo and share your drawing with a global community of portrait artists in Sktchy Art School.
This edition of the challenge is sponsored by Procreate, maker of the award-winning drawing and painting app for iPad. In their lessons, your teachers will be drawing in Procreate. You can use any medium, digital or analog, to create your drawings.
