By Dan in Weekly Preview

Monday in Video Tutorials – In tomorrow’s video, learn how Anne Bagby uses contact paper to create quick stencils and masks while painting. If you like working fast but want more control over your paint, this might be just the tip for you.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – Last week I came across Artists Helping Artists, a blog and weekly radio program by Leslie Saeta and Dreama Tolle Perry. On Tuesday I’ll pass along some more info about what they’re doing and how you can participate.

Quick announcement - EmptyEasel is giving away 50 custom-built portfolio websites to deserving artists this June. Click here to learn more or grab your spot!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Saundra Lane Galloway is a mixed-media collage artist whose work combines bold color, dynamic movement, and diverse texture. Drop in on Wednesday to check out her work, and feel free to submit your own art to be featured as well.

Thursday in Art Marketing Tips – Want to know the best way to handle comments on your blog? Then don’t miss this Thursday’s article by Alyice Edrich. She’ll be discussing comment moderation, creating a comment policy, and even ways to build relationships through commenting.

Friday in Artist Interviews – Joshua Lance has generously agreed to let EmptyEasel republish his interview with Chris Guillebeau, who (although not an artist) has a lot of knowledge about living creatively, self-marketing and social networking. Come back at the end of the week to read that interview in full.
