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 Drawing Tips – Come by tomorrow for a timely colored pencil tutorial by Carrie Lewis demonstrating how to draw shiny, reflective objects—especially useful for all the Christmas ornaments around this time of year!

Tuesday in Art Opinion – Some artists seem to get lucky and be “born” into an artistic family, or community. But starting as an adult isn’t a setback! On Tuesday Niki Hilsabeck will share 5 advantages to pursuing art later in life instead.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – For a taste of something different, don’t miss this Wednesday’s featured artist, Nicolas Delille, who creates photo-realistic digital images in 2D and 3D programs. As always, if you’d like your artwork to be featured on EE, feel free to submit your own artwork as well!

Thursday in Art Marketing Tips – Ever wondered if hiring an art consultant would make sense for your art business? Drop in at the end of the week to hear Steff Metal’s answer, and learn a few of the pros and cons.

PLUS, a reminder!
