Collagraph – Three Amigos – and a list of online video art and craft classes

Online Art Classes You’ve probably heard that everything online is moving towards video. You can read articles with statistics on trends, and look at popular social media live-video add-ons like Instagram Stories, Facebook Live video and YouTube Livestreaming video.

Watercolor: Laptop Nightlight (& encouragement to finish your art)

I love art featuring readers. I have a pinterest board of inspiring paintings of people and their books, and our descendants collecting imagery of this subject will likely include paintings and drawings of people curled around laptops, balancing nooks & ipads on their laps, and sitting contentedly under headphones.
