Challenge yourself to be creative this January

6 January 2016

64 Million Artists has the perfect antidote to those January blues. For the second year they are running the January Challenge - a fun and free set of 31 daily creative challenges delivered each morning to your inbox.

Every day in January you will be sent a short creative challenge that will take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. They are designed to fit into your day and bring it to life, making you more aware of your surroundings, introducing you to new places and people, and generally helping you to get a bit more creative in your everyday.

To sign up visit the 64 Million Artists website. Here is a selection of some of the challenges that have already been completed.
