Drawing/Painting Group

The Rogues

We have had some interest in assembling a group of artists to draw and or paint together once a week on Tuesday or Thursday evenings. The group would be self-moderated, would draw or paint still lifes or from the model and open to artists and aspiring artists alike.

Drawing and painting in a group setting gives artists the chance to have their work critiqued by the a group of like minded, non judgmental peers, hone their skills and to work outside of isolation.

If you know anyone who might be interested, please share this with others. If you would like to participate in this group, please leave your contact info in the comments, send a message, email or call 203.266.6995 during normal business hours.

Run to the light Carol Anne!

Out of isolation – out of the dark and into the light ( ) Well ok, promoting our work or ourselves isn’t as scary as some poltergeists are to a little girl but it can be daunting and often something we would rather not do.

It is something we all must do. We don’t need to be alone or in the dark during the process. To be a part of a community where we can share experiences and learn from the successes and failures of others instead of all of our own failures can take some of the mystery and dread out of the whole affair. 

I had actually been thinking of creating a resource like this for quite a while only to find we don’t have to reinvent the wheel, the resources are already there.

Don’t go it alone. You don’t have to. We can create time and space for artists to come together to meet around topics that are important to all of us. We can join the local discussions around ideas backed with the power of organizations like Americans for the Arts and National Arts Marketing Project. Through seminars both live and recorded, podcasts, and blogs and discussion groups we can work to expand our communications with the art world around us.

We will have the opportunity to explore ideas like: 

  • How to Be the author of your own story.
  • Creative Pricing Strategies for Artists
  • Marketing means more than Facebook
  • Inside the mind of a master procrastinator
  • Are you pricing dynamically
  • Social Media for creatives

These are just some ideas we can explore. We can also explore any topics that members would find helpful. If we can stir up enough interest, Ill set the wheels in motion. Just drop me an email at
