Monday in General Art Advice – Ever been asked to do a live painting demo or to explain your techniques while painting? If so, you know it’s not always an easy task to paint AND teach at the same time. Check back in tomorrow for some great advice from Denise Ivey Telep on how to go about it.

Tuesday in Painting Tutorials – Values (lights and darks) play a very important role in art. On Tuesday Dianne Mize will explain why value is so important and what it does for the visual structure and dimensionality of a painting.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – If you grew up reading National Geographic and looking at photos from around the world, then you’ll definitely like this week’s featured artist—he’s a pilot and a photographer with some amazing photographs both from his travels and from the air. Learn more on Wednesday.

Thursday in SEO for Artists – Most blogging programs are automatically set up with date-based archives for older posts (usually grouped by month). On Thursday I’ll explain why this isn’t the best way to go if you want to rank well online and give some techniques for optimizing your archives for search engines.

Friday in Art Marketing Tips – When it comes to marketing our art, there’s a lot we can learn from the mainstream business world. This Friday’s article by MaryAnn Cleary explains four major aspects of traditional marketing that are just as important for artists as they are for other business owners.
