Introducing…The Sketch a Day – 6 Week Challenge

Loft Conversions

We get asked a lot about how to improve your sketching skills. One of our main responses is to practice. The more I thought about this – the more I thought that I really want to improve my sketching skills too. So. We have come up with a challenge!

The Sketch A Day 6 Week Challenge

Its pretty simple really. All you need to do is sketch….every day….. for 6 weeks. The result, if you stick to it, will be improved sketching skills, improved confidence in your ability, you will have developed your style – and hopefully it will set you up for many more happy sketching moments!

You will not be alone – I am going to take part in the challenge, and we really hope you will too. Not only will I upload weekly inspiration and tips, I will encourage you to send in your sketches to share the experience with the First In Architecture community. You will be able to tweet us your sketches, email them to us to share on the site, or share them with us on Facebook.
