Artists Are Amazing

Header for posts

Community is a big part of the art world, whether that community is offline or online. On this website, we are building a community of creative people who feel free and comfortable to share their artwork, ask questions, learn new things and make new friends.

A Free Gift for You or an Artist You Know

As a gift for visiting this page, we would like to offer you a simple free course on how to paint this Colorful Horse Portrait:

Colorful Horse Portrait 01
Colorful Horse Portrait 01

You can use oils, acrylics, pastels, crayons or whatever. If you are new to the art world or if you have any questions at all, you can ask me (Elaine) for help from the Contact Us page.

Sign up here to receive the instruction for the Colorful Horse Portrait 01, which include the list of colors used, a template of the horse and written permission to create this painting and sell it.  I am not copywriting it.

About Our Online Community

The Skillful Artists Membership Group is not intended to replace the art groups you already involved in. But offline groups may meet only a few times a month. Whereas, you can come here anytime to post your thoughts about being creative and to read new articles about art.

Although learning artistic skills is an important part of the artist’s journey, this site also offers less tangible needs, such as encouragement during the good and bad times. We also share ideas for direction and many other “philosophical” sorts of things that are so important to a creative person.

The public part of this site is open to everyone. The other part is a member’s only section that offers even more. You are invited to join the Skillful Artists Membership Group whenever you are ready. Here are the extra benefits you will get when you become a member.

If you have any questions or suggestions, I hope you will contact me using the form on the Contact Us page. Once in the membership section, you will be given my personal email address or we can meet up on Zoom.

Whether you take advantage of only the public side of this website or if you become a member of the Skillful Artists Membership Group, my hope is that you excel in your creative endeavors and become the artist you always envisioned you can be. 

Creatively Yours,

-Elaine Foster from Colorado
