Artists Helping Artists

January 31, 2023:  This campaign is closed and emails being sent out to the matches.  

Over 400 people responded with a fairly equal amount of those who can share, and those who need.  THANKS to all for being so generous.  We will do this again in the future.

This is a KINDNESS Initiative to help those who need some kindness (and art supplies).  

I have witnessed the power of kindness in Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond.   Members encourage each other every day.  This kindness creates a ripple effect that spreads across the world.

Do you have extra supplies you would like to share with someone? 

or… Do you need supplies?  

We did this campaign before, and group members helped over 250 people who needed art supplies — all over the world!

Here is how it works:

  • Complete the survey indicating if you need watercolor supplies, or want to share supplies: Artists Helping Artists
  • Within the same country, we will match those who have extra to give to those who need.
    • If there are people who are willing to pay international postage to other countries, please indicate that in the last question in the survey.
  • The sender and recipient will receive an email from and then the recipient can share mailing address.  (I will match people during January, longer depending on the number of responses.)
  • The sender mails the art goodies to the recipient.
  • Everyone is filled with joy.  🙂

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

  • Can we share used watercolor palettes, pans, tubes, brushes?
    • Yes, of course!
  • Is it okay to share student grade supplies?
    • Yes.   This has been a financially demanding time for many.   All art supplies will bring someone joy!  (and student grade supplies are great to use!)
  • Can we buy a gift card from an art supply store to send?
    • Yes!  Make sure to buy an eGift card from a store in the recipient’s country to avoid the cost of international shipping.

Do one act of kindness each day of the year, and change 365 lives.
