Hi everyone, I'm new here, and also new to the world of art. I am teaching myself how to draw and paint (it is slow-going!). I've tried acrylics and watercolor, and so far I like acrylics the best.
Is there a group here for newbies like me? (And is it okay for me to be part of this Art Colony if I'm only a "wanna be" artist?)
Thanks so much for your input and insights!
First of all...newbies are absolutely, positively, without a doubt welcome at The Art Colony so never, ever question whether you belong here! I'm looking in to the possibility of starting a group for beginners, but in the meantime, please don't hesitate to post your work and ask your questions in the forums. : )
Hi Maureen! I've been taking drawing classes for the last several months, and have learned so much...but I'm eager to get back to "putting paint to paper!" I'm not a trained painter, either, but feel like this is a great site to learn from others who are in the same boat with me.
Glad to see you. I hope you will find some good encouragement here. What have you been working on?
Yes, newbies are definitely welcome here! I echo everything that Donna said so wonderfully: "Newbies are absolutely, positively, without a doubt welcome at The Art Colony so never, ever question whether you belong here!"
For all newbies, please do ask questions and post your art because we're all here to help each other learn and grow and share this fun art adventure. Even professional artists started out as newbies at one point... even the "Old Masters" had to learn to draw and paint for the first time at some point in their lives! You can look at a painting and think "Wow!" and not realize that it took the artist 20 or 40 years to learn to paint like that. So we all start off somewhere... at the beginning. :)
Hopefully soon we will have a group for newbies, so we'll post again soon about that.
Have a great weekend everyone! :)
