This Week’s Creative Art Prompt:

creative art prompts stay at home Realism _Pet Portrait

For those new to these creative art prompts…

We all know how important it is to use art as a way to express ourselves and give our minds a mini-vacation from everything else going on around us, including the coronavirus.

With many of us limited to where we can go right now, our team wanted to help you make the most of it – with art.

For the next several weeks we’re going to bring you fun prompts and invite you to create a painting or drawing inspired by it. You’ll find the prompts in our Realism Today newsletter, here at RealismToday.com, and on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

When you post your inspired painting on Instagram or Facebook and tag us, you’ll have the chance to be featured on our site, and on social media! On Instagram, include #realismtoday and be sure to tag us @realism.today. If you prefer to use Facebook, tag @Realism Today on your post and make sure your privacy setting on that post is set to “public.”

We can’t wait to see your art!
