We are an online artist community sharing ways to create and sell art. Join us to save big on art supplies or try our easy websites for artists.

Monday in SEO for Artists – Ever noticed that the amount of traffic to your art blog (or art website) tends to drop like a rock during holidays? Luckily there’s a solution for that, and I’ll share it tomorrow. . . just in the nick of time. :)

Tuesday in Photoshop Tricks – Karyn Lewis will explain how to use digital “brushes” in Photoshop to mimic traditional mediums like pencil, watercolor and oil paint.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – I highly encourage you to come back in the middle of the week for some breathtaking landscapes and cityscapes by Leanne Christie—you won’t regret it.

Thursday in Drawing Tips – Kim Carver has a great little tutorial lined up that shows how to make tortillons (those little sticks of paper for smudging and blending drawings.) Read it, and never buy them again.

Friday in Selling Art Online – If you use Imagekind, RedBubble, Zazzle, or any other print-on-demand services, don’t miss Friday’s foliotwist update. We’ve got something new to announce that you might like. :)
