We're an online artist community sharing ways to create and sell art. Try one of our easy websites for artists or just browse around and enjoy!

Monday in Drawing Tips – Come by tomorrow for a free excerpt from Carrie Lewis’ colored pencil art book. It covers some of the early technical aspects of colored pencil drawing, and would make a great starter article or reference for new artists.

Tuesday in Art Marketing Tips – In Part 3 of my series on “Selling Art by Email” I’ll explain how to use statistics like “opens” “clicks” and “unsubscribes” (among other things) to improve your art newsletter every time you send it.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Working in oil, digital and mixed media, Giancarlo Piccin’s gorgeous paintings meld together influences from as far back as the Renaissance to modern masters like Edward Hopper. Drop by for those mid-week, and then feel free to send in your own artwork to be featured as well!

Thursday in Misc – A few weeks back, I asked you to weigh in on what kind of art-related service you’d like us to create next. There were three options only, and TWO of those options have received a virtually identical number of votes.

So. . . PLEASE head over to that survey and take it if you haven’t already. We need a clear winner, here, folks! :) Because on Thursday I’ll close the survey, announce the results, and share how we plan to make it happen.
