AHAtober 2024

Welcome to AHAtober 2024!

AHAtober is a special event for meditative artists, inspired by the popular Inktober challenge.

This month-long journey is designed to bring calmness and creativity together, providing a space for artists to explore and express themselves through gentle and reflective prompts.



Inktober is an art movement devised by Jake Parker way back in 2009. To do Inktober you draw one ink artwork for every day of October.  At the end you have thirty-one artworks.

What is AHAtober?

AHAtober is an annual event that takes place throughout the entire month of October.

Unlike traditional art challenges, AHAtober focuses on mindfulness and meditation, encouraging artists to create with intention and serenity.

Each day in October features a unique prompt, making a total of 31 prompts for you to enjoy.

Why Join AHAtober?

Many artists choose AHAtober over Inktober because it offers a softer, more introspective approach to daily art challenges.

The prompts are thoughtfully designed to inspire calm and meditative creativity, allowing you to connect deeply with your artistic practice.
