This fall, we were proud to partner with Inktober, an international drawing challenge, to encourage positive art-making habits within our Princeton community.
Artist Jake Parker created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. Inktober has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
Inktober is held virtually throughout the month of October, when, each day, anyone participating in the challenge creates an ink drawing and posts it to social media. A provided list of prompts guides artists of all skill levels to create a new drawing every day, and participants are welcomed and encouraged to interpret the inspiration as literally or imaginatively as they’d like.
These sketches were created by our Princeton community of artists and art-lovers, encouraged by ACP teaching artist Barbara DiLorenzo who hosted free virtual drawing sessions. Thank you to everyone who participated!
