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 – Drop in tomorrow for an excellent article from Carrie Lewis discussing her favorite drawing surfaces. She lists the pros and cons of several popular brands of paper, along with a few. . . less standard. . . options. :)

Tuesday in Featured Artists – Don’t miss seeing Alexis Guthrie’s absolutely stunning, texture-heavy paintings. Then, why not submit your own artwork? We’d love to see it, and we’re always looking for new artists to feature.

Wednesday in General Art Advice – Last but not least, John R. Math will finish out the week with five great suggestions for every artist looking to impress a panel of judges. This one is definitely worth a read!

Plus, for today and tomorrow only. . .

Apparently they don’t do this often, so if you’re interested, head on over and grab a discounted class today. Each purchase also does a little bit to support EE, and with the current discount going on, it’s a great time to buy!
