Art challenges are a great excuse to get out your art supplies and make something. They’re also good motivators for anyone who is stuck, since they provide a theme, a deadline, and a like-minded group of people to share the experience.

There are oodles of mixed-media art challenges going on every week. Here’s a breakdown of the most popular, by day of the week.
