PSUGD’s own Kate Bingaman-Burt is one of a small group of creative guides on this month-long class, 28 to Make.

From the website—”Sometimes, we lapse into unproductive habits because we don’t know what else to do. That’s why we worked with some of the best creators we know to bring these 28 daily creative project ideas to your inbox so you can get back in the habit of making.”


Check out this brief outline of the month and the teachers:
Week 1: Celebrating everyday objects through drawing with Kate Bingaman-Burt
Week 2: Exploring line, form, and texture with Ryan Putnam
Week 3: Hacking visual language and creative thinking with Lara McCormick
Week 4: Connecting to your context through observation and lettering with Erik Marinovich
