I have set up a Facebook group for Artists learning to paint. I have a number of students, many of which enjoy creating artwork outside of my workshops so I felt this would be a great opportunity for them to connect with each other (as I run many classes) and upload and share their artwork. I can also offer feedback should they request it.
Being an artist can be a little isolating at times and you tend to shut yourself off in your studio, so this is a good way for them to connect with each other.
The group is closed and you have to request to join, the main reason being so that people trying to promote services don’t join and to keep it a little more private, however it is not just limited to people in my classes, it is open to anyone who is in the process of learning to paint.
