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.

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.

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