The yearly Crayonuary 30 Day Challenge Event is from February 1 to March 1, 2024


When is the last time someone gave you a box of crayons and permission to just play?

Crayonuary® is the ultimate transformative journey designed to unleash your creativity and soothe your soul! Created in 2018 by artist, Ron Gross. Crayonuary® invites you to take a daily drawing exploration. Over the next thirty days, your mission is simple: create one drawing each day using crayons.


Engaging in a daily drawing practice offers a myriad of benefits for both the mind and spirit:

  • It cultivates a deeper connection with one's creativity, fostering a sense of self-expression and exploration.

  • Through consistent drawing, you will develop improved fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, and hone your ability to translate thoughts and emotions into visual form.

  • Additionally, daily drawing serves as a powerful outlet for stress relief and relaxation, providing a tranquil space for mindfulness and reflection.

  • Over time, this practice nurtures confidence and self-esteem, promotes problem-solving and critical thinking, enriches your artistic abilities. It will also nourish your soul, fostering a deeper appreciation for beauty, imagination, and the boundless possibilities of creation.


Why crayons, you ask? Beyond their vibrant hues and whimsical charm, crayons possess a unique power to dissolve barriers that other art tools may erect. Not only are they colorful sticks of joy, they are a magical gateway to childlike creativity, and let's be honest – crayons are just plain fun!


The Crayonuary® 30-Day Challenge


The Crayonuary 30-Day Challenge is your golden opportunity to immerse yourself in the therapeutic wonders of daily drawing, unleash your imagination, embrace the joy of crayons, and experience the magic of Crayonuary!

Pick a day to start, then for the next 30 days, make a daily drawing with a crayons. Any type and any color that tickles your fancy. Just draw. The only "rule" is that you can only use crayon. Your drawing can be as simple as a line or as complex as you want. You decide. Your drawing can take two minutes or two hours, there are no time limits. Just go with whatever flow you are feeling in the moment. Your mission is to make a crayon drawing every day for the next 30 days.


We know you will get great benefits from the crayon drawing practice. The most important thing is that you do one drawing every day for thirty days.


A few things to consider...


  • Only use crayons! Any crayons will do. Even those little packets you sometimes get from a restaurant. And any paper will do too. You don't need any fancy art supplies to join in this challenge. Crayons and paper. That's it!
