Phoenix Art Supplies & Framing

presents an

art show!

Sunday, October 30, 2022
Noon – 3:00 pm

What is Inktober?

Created by Jake Parker in 2009 with the intent of inspiring artists to get into the habit of drawing regularly in order to improve their skills through practice, the Inktober Challenge is this:

Use ink as a medium to create a new piece of artwork for every day in the month of October. Don’t have enough ideas to keep the drawings coming? No worries! There are prompts for that. Visit the official site at inktober.com for more information.

All of us here at Phoenix Art Supplies & Framing want to encourage you to develop confidence and strong drawing habits. This non-juried art show will be a fun opportunity to try something new and display your results with fellow local artists in a festive environment. In addition to the art show, there will be fun fall activities and refreshments. Enjoy the fall air while painting a mini-pumpkin or try out ink-based art materials at our ‘play station’. During this special event view, purchase and vote for your favorite original artwork. Costumes are encouraged, but optional.
