Creeptober Halloween October Art Challenge
Join in with our October art challenge that has a Halloween theme, ‘Creeptober’.
We are challenging you to create something ‘creepy’ every single day throughout October.
You can create anything you like, from a pumpkin carving to a drawing, a painting, write a poem, a creepy story, a scary photo, or a spooky sculpture… And you can even mix it up to keep it interesting!
