You ready to participate in Seatember 2020? Today is the first of August, which means we’re only one month away from September. This year, I’m revealing the prompt list one month early in order to give participants time to research, plan and brainstorm before the big kickoff on September 1st.
PS: Free art challenge worksheet bundle further down in this post 🙂
What is “Seatember”?
Seatember is an ocean- and marine-themed one-month long illustration challenge that runs throughout September each year. It encourages artists and creatives to create sea-themed illustrations every day of September. It’s a great opportunity to learn and/or spread awareness of different marine animals, habitats and fun facts.
I created the Seatember illustration and art challenge last year, and I was thrilled to see other people participate in it. This year, the challenge is back for its second year of existence.
Seatember 2020 Official Prompt List
This year I am also publishing a series of worksheets for Seatember. These are completely optional, and demonstrate how I personally prepare for a monthly creative challenge. If this is your first time participating in a monthly drawing challenge, or if you have found it difficult to complete one in the past, then these might be helpful!
Worksheets can be downloaded here:
- Download the Seatember 2020 Full Color PDF
- Download the Black and White Seatember PDF (ideal if your printer doesn’t print in color, or if you prefer a high contrast document)
I would absolutely love to see your creations! If you do decide to participate in my Seatember art challenge and share your work online, make sure to use the challenge hashtags and mention me (@evybenita) in your caption. I’ll be featuring tons of pieces in my Instagram stories and retweeting on Twitter.
