By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Video Tutorials – Watercolor painter George James will be demonstrating a simple technique for creating visually interesting patterns of dark and light in your paintings. As you’ll see tomorrow, it doesn’t even matter what your subject matter is.

Tuesday in Art Marketing Tips – After 3 years telling artists to start blogging, I’ve realized that many artists still don’t grasp how truly effective this medium is for marketing art. So on Tuesday I’m going to share a perfect analogy for how blogging really works—and I’ll also explain why ANYONE can do it. Don’t miss it!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – For Angie Pickman, cutting out paper shapes didn’t end in elementary school—and her intricate paper artwork is anything but elementary. Drop by for the full story this Wednesday.

Thursday in Artist Interviews – Later in the week, Alyice Edrich will be posting an excellent interview with collage artist and instructor, Alexandra Sheldon. They discuss creativity, composition, and what makes up a good collage.

Friday in Art Opinion – Why is it that some people are labeled as “emerging” artists? Is it their artwork? Or something else? Randal Stringer leaves us with some good comments about this strange artworld phenomenon on Friday.
