{May Sketch-Along} Come, Holy Spirit

It's here! It's here! The first ever Pitter Patter Diaries Sketch-Along is here!

"The purpose of art is nothing less than the upliftment of the human spirit.' 
~ St. John Paul II

My creative journey has taken a long time to develop, ranging from completely inactive because an art teacher told me I really couldn't draw, to wildly creative because I had all the time in the world and tried my hand at every medium. I am settling into a creative voice finally - one that believes art should bring joy to the soul and lift it up to the One who created all the beauty that exists. Some of that includes painting, some writing, some drawing, some graphic design, some photography. See? I still can't settle on a medium!

Regardless of what your creative journey has been or your actual/perceived proficiency in any given medium, please join me in creating art that lifts the soul. With Pentecost just a couple weeks away, the theme for May is the Holy Spirit. You could use a quote. You could use Scripture. You could just make something up if you so choose. Please, just join me in sharing with the world the beauty and power of the Holy Spirit.

Leave me a comment if you think you'd like to "sketch-along," and if you find yourself posting about your creation, leave a link in the comments so I can follow along and be inspired too! At the end of the month, if I have your permission, I will post a wrap-up featuring all of our work with a link to your websites (if you have them). No blog or website is necessary to participate, of course.

Until next time, let's get out there and love 'em like Jesus!

  1. This sounds so fun! I don't know how to draw but I am really interesting in hand lettering. If I am just starting to practice, do I need to get the nicer pens with the ink or can I just use one of those inexpensive calligraphy pens?
