totem pole drawing contest

This week, we’re challenging you to draw your very own totem pole using PicsArt’s drawing tools. Enter your drawing by tagging it with #DCtotempole. 

Totem poles are large, beautiful pillars of wood with figures of animals and folkloric characters carved into them. Iconic of northwestern Native American cultures, they are often painted in bright colors, and in addition to being beautiful cultural artifacts, their carvings often tell stories of legends and commemorate major events. 

This week, you can either replicate these iconic monuments or create your own, inventing your own mythical figures and carving your own stories into large wooden poles using PicsArt’s drawing tools. 

Feel free to use our video feature to share a time-lapse of your drawing when you’re done!
