I started a February Sketch Challenge to encourage others to kick start their sketching and drawing skills. As an art teacher, I would say that the biggest challenge my students have is their limited ability to draw. (the other is colour theory) People jump into painting without having a good skeleton for the piece and spend time and effort trying to correct in on the canvas, often ending up frustrated.
The challenge is to draw something every day during February. All levels of expertise are welcome and its a private Facebook group that keeps out trolls and negativity or turn it into a brag fest for proficient artists. Its not too late to join and whether you sketch once a day or once a week, every sketch counts on the journey to become skilled in observing and drawing.
Visit the group and send a request to join. We'd love to see you there.
