Monday in Art Opinion – Some of you may have already heard about Imagekind being bought by CafePress, but if not, come back for tomorrow’s article. I’ll be covering the basic details of the buyout, of course, but I’m also going to share who I WISHED would have made the purchase—and a few other thoughts, no doubt. : )

Tuesday in General Art Advice – Denise continues her series on hosting a community art event, and this week the subject is participation—specifically, how to encourage it among all participants so your event is a success. Don’t miss it!
