This Week: 8/30 through 9/5

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Painting Tutorials – Tomorrow, we’ll be posting a great tutorial by abstract painter Gail A Stivers. She’ll be sharing 7 creative ideas to help you start your next abstract artwork, whether it’s your very first abstract piece, or your hundredth!

Tuesday in Motivation – Read about how Jamie Guerrero, a glass artist from California, is helping at-risk youth in Los Angeles learn the amazing skill of glass-blowing. . . plus, we’ll tell you what you can do to make sure his work continues!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Drop by for a look at some fantastic digital illustrations and paintings by Jeffrey Carreras Martinez this Wednesday. As always, if you’d like your own art to be featured on EE, make sure to submit it for consideration!

Thursday in General Art Advice – Carrie Lewis will finish out the week with a very smart post considering the pros and cons of contributing art to charities, along with some good questions to ask before signing up to support a cause.

And, if you’ve ever considered getting your artwork published. . .

You should definitely meet Kate Woodrow!

Kate is the creator of this online workshop for artists which explains how to navigate the publishing world and package your artwork into an idea that publishers will love.


In her comprehensive 3-day workshop you’ll learn how to:

+ Develop a compelling illustrated book idea
+ Find out what publishers are looking for
+ Craft a proposal that appeals to acquisition editors

The full workshop registration is $97, but you can save $50 on your purchase with discount code “emptyeasel.”

What about last week’s articles on EmptyEasel?

Sorry, there weren’t any! I spent last week working on the upcoming EE art gallery, which will be launching VERY soon with its own unique domain and about 30 fantastic artists (plus we’ll be adding more all the time).

Stay tuned for the official launch announcement next week!
