#kidlitart28 2019

Hey everyone!

(I'm just posting a repeat of what was announced at our January 24th #kidlitart chat.)

Every year, we challenge our community to participate in a daily art challenge for the month of February. We call it #kidlitart28 (#KLA28) #kidlitart

This year we’re keeping it loose and easy for you. You draw as much or as little as you want on a daily basis-ink only, pencil only, full color finish-it’s up to you. The only parameter that you follow is the theme: WHAT YOU LOVE. You will be illustrating 28 days of things YOU love.

Your homework for the next week is to create a list of everything you love, narrow it down to a theme, and have that as your #kidlitart28 focus.

Also remember, whenever/wherever you post your images, to Twitter, FB,, Instgram, tag it with #kidlitart of course, but also tag it with #kidlitart28 (and if you choose #KLA28) so we can all see what you’re cooking up!

We have a three month art challenge coming, and what you do for #kidlitart28 could tie into it. We'll announce it at our next chat on January 31st!
