Virtual Galleries, Art Contests, ARTicle submissions, and Art Critiques!

Shameless self-promotion FOR YOU!  I've decided there just aren't enough resources to help the emerging artist (as I myself have looked), so I'm going to make them for us:

TWO Virtual Galleries for YOUR ART now at the bottom of both my blogs, this one AND Art School Grad.  Going until the end of the month, then I'll refresh them!

ART CONTESTS monthly: click here to submit to April's THEME challenge to possibly win an interview and feature and online promotion.

ARTicle SUBMISSIONS: want to write an article for the Art School Grad blog?  Click here to submit (must be a member - all are welcome to apply)

CRITIQUES: want some honest feedback on your in-progress or finished work?  Click here to post and comment!

Hope this gives everyone a platform for more exposure!

Collaboration with floatingwoo (Chris Davies)

Despite the huge distance between us (I'm in England while Chris is on the west coast of the US), we have managed a wild collaboration project!  I call it "Cloud bunny."

Art School Grad

With such a small percentage of recent grads actually making a living as artists, it's critical to not give up! As a former college art instructor and a current freelance artist, I thought why not reach out to other emerging artists. Let's share our real life experiences, the things you can't learn in school.

Brand Spank'n New Team, come on over and join the discussion: Art School Grad
or post a comment here!
