For those who are looking for a February Art Challenges, here’s a suggestion – the Fairyary!
In this article, I gather pieces of information about the Fairyary Art Challenge – so if you are curious about what it is, or perhaps you want to participate in this challenge, then this article is for you 🙂
What is Fairyary?
Fairyary is an art challenge that was initiated to invite artists to draw more fairies during February.
The word “Fairyary” is a combination of two words – Fairy and February.
The goal of this challenge is to draw one fairy per day for a month.
To help you with this challenge, a prompt list is published every year. It contains themes/keywords that are assigned to days (1 theme per a day) which stand as an inspiration for your artworks.
Below you can see a prompt list for Fairyary 2020
You can create your own prompt list, or use a list created by other artists.
There are no restrictions in regards to what tools you can use. You can paint, draw, sculpt, or if you prefer – even write.
You don’t have to stick to the image of a small female woman with butterfly wings. The term “Fairy” is often used in a wider sense, including various similar beings, such as dwarves and elves.
Sometimes fairies are described as assuming the guise of an animal.
