Inktober is a month-long program that encourages artists of all levels, from doodlers to Vincent Van Gogh's, to draw something once a day and share it! And if you're not sure what to draw, you can pick up a drawing-prompt calendar to give you ideas.

If you have any art you want to share during Inktober, post it on Facebook or Instagram with #WaupacaInktober2019, and we'll share it on Facebook! Or, bring it to the library so we can scan it or hang it up on our displays upstairs or in the Teen Room!

Prompts can be found at the library, on our Facebook/Instagram pages, or at the official Inktober website: https://inktober.com/rules
