Facebook Art Groups
Hello folks. Another quick art post today. I just wanted to mention what a great idea it is to join as many art related Facebook groups as you possibly can. They are excellent to use as a sounding board for your work, get advice from more experienced artists and make new friends and contacts. They will really help you develop your artist's eye and take your work to the next level. I personally am a member of 15 different art groups and I post in them on a regular basis. If you want to make your way in the art world you really need to immerse yourself in the subject. Facebook is an excellent way of achieving this and moving in the right circles of people to develop your work. Other social media services such as Twitter and Instagram can also be very useful but Facebook is definitely the daddy. I would be very surprised if you were to tell me that you don't have a Facebook account in this day of age, but if you haven't, I would recommend registering today, even if it is just so you can use it as a means to further your art by joining some groups. Don't be put off by all the horror stories you hear about Facebook such as privacy infringement etc. It is largely hype and you are solidly in control of what you do and don't want to share with people. Anyway, there is my thought for the day, ladies and gents. I will be back soon with another inspirational blog post for your enjoyment. Take care for now.
