Since Ink/tober is ruined forever by greed, Classical-world-inspired teachers @drcorabeth and @LEJenksBrown (me) decided to make our own Classical Studies* one. For funsies. We cordially invite you all to join in!

*honestly, the name has been the hardest part! We’re going to stick with ‘Classics’ to mean Ancient Greece and Rome until it gets replaced by something better. Although of course if you want to draw to include additional Ancient Mediterranean cultures that is awesome, as learning is what we’re here for and I particularly don’t know nearly enough outside of what I personally have to teach.

Most of the prompts are pretty open but some will be Greek/Latin terms (with translations obvs) and seeing equivalents will be very educational!

Hoping to see lots of interpretations of the prompts as history and myth and explorations of the themes! And in any medium – drawings, inks, digital, video, sculpture, photography…Can’t wait! Share online with the hashtag #ClassicsTober when you’re ready! (And it’s ok to skip days – pick what inspires you!)
