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.

On Monday we’ll be celebrating Columbus Day, so there will be only three articles this week. :) If you get the day off, enjoy your break!

Tuesday in Drawing Tips – Carrie Lewis will expand on her article from last week with a full grid-based drawing tutorial. If you’ve ever wanted to get a little more accurate with your drawings, this would be a great technique to try!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Drop in for some pop-art style portraits with a contemporary twist by Gerry Chapleski. And as always, feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured as well.

Thursday in Motivation – Finish out the week with a great article from Jill Wagner. Jill’s an accomplished artist with a diverse portfolio of landscapes, figures, and more, but she still makes time to paint what she loves—and it’s probably not what you’d guess. :) Get the full story Thursday!
