Every October is Inktober – a month when artists and budding artists are encouraged to do one ink drawing a day to improve their inking skills.

Anyone can do Inktober. You just need to pick up a pen and start drawing! The rules are simple:
1. Make a drawing in ink (you can do pencil under-drawing if you want)
2. Post it on any social media account, or just post it on your refrigerator. The point is to share your art with someone.
3. If you’ve posted it on social media remember to hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2019
4. Repeat.

It’s up to you how often you post your drawings but try to post something at least every week. Inktober is all about growing and improving your skills, and practise makes perfect!

To mark the (almost) end of Inktober, the library’s Drawing Club meeting in October is going to be all about ink but if you don’t fancy monochrome there will be coloured inks to use too. The Drawing Club is free to attend and open to all ages and skill levels. Basically, anyone can come along to wield a pen or pencil and have some fun!

So, make a note in your diary and join us for an Inktober challenge at Oundle Library on Tuesday, 29 October from 10.00 to 11.00am.
