Forums and Groups - Resources for Artists

Following on from my blog post last Saturday I've create a new resource site relating to forums and groups for artists - Art Forums - Resources for Artists.

It comprises:
I've added it into my group of information sites on Making A Mark on Squidoo.

I'm aiming to add links to this site on an ongoing basis if I hear of any good forums or groups. I'd be interested to hear any suggestions you may have.



  1. There's also the Painting Forum, which is an active forum that's been going for many years.

    Members are a mixture of newbies, part-time painters, and pros. Our motto is: "Each of us may not know that much, but together we become masters." Our style is to encourage through compassionate critique.

  2. Hi Katherine, there is a group called "Worldwide Women Artists" that is very active. They have a group on yahoo (one must be juried into the group), a website and a blog. This is a group of women artists who help one another through sharing and marketing. It is all volunteer. I am providing a link to their "about" page ( for more info.

    Recently, I was accepted into the group and it appears to be a great forum. I am still learning my way around, but so far it seems good.

  3. Katherine, thank you for this! I return to Making a Mark time and time again. Just wanted to show my appreciation!

  4. What a fabulous resource - thank you Katherine!
    A couple of online art forums we have here in Australia are

  5. Marion - I'd actually added your forum in. I had a glitch on Friday when i was finishing if off and had to close down Firefox completely and I thought I'd already published it but obviously I hadn't.

    Maryann and Treicia - thanks for your groups - I'll add them in.

  6. OK - I've added two new 'sections'. One for forums with a national focus and one for groups of women artists

  7. Katherine,
    Scribble Talk ( is a great forum as well. Their focus is on colored pencil, graphite and other drawing media.
