Art Instruction in Our New Video Gallery

Artists are continually looking for new sources of advice and inspiration, which is probably one of the main reasons you’re receiving this newsletter and visiting the Artist Daily website. A perfect example of artists’ desire to learn can be found in the recently held Weekend With the Masters. American Artist pulled together some of today’s most important representational artists for a series of workshops and lectures in Colorado Springs, and it was such a success that we’ve already begun planning for a 2010 event.

But sometimes attending a workshop isn’t always possible. Whether it’s due to the price, the timing, or the location, a good number of us just won’t be able to attend. Artist Daily is now offering you another option for instruction and inspiration: our recently launched video gallery. You may not be able to attend a workshop, but you can still get the tips you’re looking for, right on your computer.

The new gallery is divided into a series of “playlists” based on medium and subject, and it allows visitors to search videos from all over the web. There’s even a section highlighting clips created by American Artist editors and staff. In addition, members can upload their own videos or can search other video hosts for clips and place them on Artist Daily to share with other members.

The gallery is still a work in progress, but we’ve already received some pretty great feedback. As one visitor said, “It is like having a fellow artist drop in for a short visit. I am not partial to visitors in my studio, because they usually stay too long, so this works great, and I learn something from each one.” I don’t know if I could have said it any better. So go check it out, and let us know if you enjoy the visitors as much as we do.

  1. Brian,
    Many thanks for this posting. As a father of a 2 yo and 4 yo who works a day job besides doing his art, I love these sorts of online features. I can get some instruction that works with my schedule!
    Thanks again!
