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 and learn another great way to blend colored pencils from Carrie Lewis. All you need is an old, worn-down brush and one other item you probably already have laying around your studio. . .

Tuesday in Selling Art Online – You’ve heard of Kickstarter, and maybe a few other crowdfunding websites, right? Well there’s a new website out there that offers crowdfunding opportunities JUST for artists. Drop in on Tuesday for the full story!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Gritty, textured, bright—all of those adjectives (and more) could be used to describe Nancy Flanagan’s gorgeous, high-contrast landscape paintings. Don’t miss seeing those on Wednesday, and as always, feel free to submit your own art to be featured on EE as well.

Thursday in Art Products – Finish out the week with a look at a new and very innovative product created to make shipping large canvases a whole lot easier. Don’t miss it!

Plus, this coming Saturday. . .

We’ll be partnering with Craftsy to offer a “Beginner’s Guide to the World of Watercolors” absolutely free! Come by anytime on Saturday or Sunday (visit the Painting Tutorials section) and download your own copy!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Instead of publishing new articles this week, we'll be taking some time off to celebrate turkey day and enjoy all the festivities. Have a safe and happy holiday, and I’ll see you back here next Sunday!
