Do you have a great idea for a group?

Groups are a great place for like-minded artists to meet and chat about a common theme - for instance, there is a group for abstract art and another group for photorealist art

We're totally open to ideas for new groups, as long as there is a demand for it.  So if you've got an idea for a group, post your suggestion here!  If you like someone else's idea for a group, chime in with your opinion so that we can gauge how many people are interested in each idea.

Also, if you have an idea for a group and want to be the group leader, post here and let us know.

Hey Alan, I think you would be the perfect group leader for such a group.  Would you be interested in starting one? :)

I would love to Thaneeya,

What must I do though, welcome people? comment on their work? give help where I can? It would be an honor my friend and I shall drop in a few times each day to see who popped by or uploaded their work.

Happy days Thaneeya

Hi Alan,

 

Just click on "groups" and then "add".  Write up a description, upload a pic, and then one of the mods will approve the group, and you'll be good to go!  As a group leader, it's good to start discussions, share ideas and artwork, etc.  Wait until you get some members and then see what people are interested in.  One thing you could do in the group is start a discussion that outlines your process and links to your progress images.  I'm sure many people would find that very helpful!


Let me know if you need any help setting up the group. :)

Thanks Thaneeya, 

I shall enjoy this new adventure and will start today:) Im sure I will be asking you for lots of help too hahahaha

There's been some interest in a Digital Art Group.  Is anyone interested in being a leader for the Digital Art Group?  Please post here if you are - we need a leader before we can start the group. :)
I was just coming here to request a digital art group.  I'd be willing to help out, I'm willing to give a shot at being a leader.  Let me know.  :)

I am interested in a Pop Art Group.  I can be a leader if I need to. Let me know if I need to help out!!

Hi Cindy,

Thank you for offering to lead a potential Pop Art Group!  Let's see if we can gauge member interest before starting it up. 

Is anyone else interested in joining a Pop Art Group? 

Im all for the Zentangle/Doodle group.

another thing is keeping product info just in one spot (unless it is and i have missed it) for example. Pastels. Im seeing alot about it and i googled the different pastels but still have no clue (soft/hard/oil/acrylic). Maybe a place where a list is kept (no necessarily advertising for any particular manufacturer) again, like the pastels. a description of all and what they are like, what effects can be had with each one and maybe showing off artwork. Or like the Inktense. I never heard of those (of course im so new). maybe a breakdown of different type pencils, how they work, what to expect. I hope im making sense here. being new this would help me figure out what to use and where to use it and what paper/canvas to put it on etc etc. All this in one place. as it is now we have to go, lets say to "pencils work" or something titled that. then work our way around all the comments to fnd out about a product. ok so thats my idea
