Found! A University/College for Your Artwork!

Do you ever find yourself wondering what to do with your artwork? One idea to find a new home for your artwork is to ask your alma mater whether they would like a painting or other artwork of yours. It is a great way to give back to your university or college and a fabulous way to inspire future generations of students and artists!

Take Small Steps to Reach Art Goals

Take steps each week and month to reach your personal and professional art goals in 2017! Below are some suggestions to help you get started on the right path:
