Hi ♥


.. and a special welcome to all new members to our Art Community , I hope you are all settling in to our creative space

- I have decided to switch the NEWSLETTER to a different host, to avoid the problems we have had with the Ning provider changing their settings often .... I hope this makes it an easier solution for everyone to access community news
Please SUBSCRIBE to our new newsletter here


we are hoping to start hosting a weekly chat here in our community ... we had a successful start last week .. THIS WEEKS CHAT will be FRIDAY , January 29th at 2 pm EST .... The proposed general theme for our Art Chat is " INSPIRATION" .. with your host firefly Julie Simmonds

Julie welcomes ideas for future chats and themes... so please feel free to message her
Here a link to a time converter to help you find the time in your country ... l
