Quick Kick May Drawing Challenge

#QuickKickMay

For this May drawing challenge, we invite you to create a simple daily drawing using your non-dominant hand, throughout the month.

This drawing challenge stimulates the ‘creative’ hemisphere of our brains by using our ‘wrong’ hand. Studies have shown that when using our dominant hand, only one hemisphere of the brain is active, however by using our non-dominant hand, both sides of our brain are active.

“Quick Kicks” are our monthly art challenges that you can complete in 15 minutes or less per day.

Challenge Guidelines

  1. You should create at least one daily drawing/painting with your non-dominant hand throughout May
  2. You can draw anything you want (we will provide optional prompts)
  3. You can use any medium to create your painting or drawing
  4. Your non dominant hand drawings should take no more than 15 minutes
  5. Don’t forget to link back to us and tag us so we can see what you have created.

Tips to make the drawing challenge a little more manageable

  • Carry your sketchbook with you everywhere. This way you can squeeze your drawing in whenever you have some time to spare.
  • For this drawing challenge, it might be easier to use small to medium sized paper
  • Decide beforehand what you are going to draw. You could have a theme for the month or use our daily prompts.

Ideas to make your drawings a little more interesting
