A couple of years ago I met with a group of friends that were fellow artists on a regular basis. We tried to meet at least once a month to do an art project and just sit and talk about our current projects.
|I created this during one of our gatherings|
Do you ever create with other artists or work in different art mediums?
The best part of meeting as a group is trying different techniques, learning a new medium, and just making the time to do something new.

• Get together people who are excited about the idea of working in different mediums and creating.
• Choose the size of your group. It can be as few as 2 - 3 people or a group as large as you have space for.
• Everyone needs to be willing to host a gathering and share an art project.
I was lucky, in my group we had a couple of art teachers and they always had enough supplies for everyone to use. I know that is not the case for everyone. To make it easier for the hostess maybe after each gathering you collect a few dollars for the hostess to get supplies for the next gathering.

~ It stretches your creative muscle
~ Talking with like minded people
~ Motivation to stay creative
~ Help with ideas for a projects you are working on
We can all benefit from working with other artist, and working in different art mediums. As creative business owners we spend a lot of time alone working, and it can be lonely sometimes. Taking a break to meet with fellow artist can be very inspiring and motivating.
Put together a group today!
