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 Motivation – Failure is never fun. . . and yet it plays a very important part in learning and becoming better at whatever you do (especially art.) Drop by tomorrow for a fantastic guest post by Mike Roy on how to use failure as a creative tool for future success.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – If you love art like I do, you’re probably always on the lookout for affordable, original artwork to brighten up your walls. Come back on Tuesday to read about a few non-traditional methods that I use to discover new art & artists—I think you’ll like them!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Impressionist, textured, layered. . . all of these words describe Mark Nesmith’s gorgeous landscape paintings. Check them out for yourself on Wednesday, and feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured as well!

Thursday in Art Websites – Carrie Lewis will be reviewing a unique website for artists and photographers called “PaintMyPhoto.” She’ll explain what the site does and how artists (of all kinds) can use it.

Contests and competitions:

If you haven’t dropped by ASC’s art competion page lately, head on over and see what’s cooking. I guarantee you’ll find a contest that will tickle your creativity—and, they have a ton of great prizes right now, too!
