Helpful resources for new Facebook group members

Are you new to the Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group?

Our purpose:  to create a global community for artists to come together, share their artwork, and provide support and encouragement to each other.

The group aims to foster a positive and nurturing environment where artists can grow, learn, and inspire each other in their artistic journeys.  The group’s core value is kindness.  Be kind to others; be kind to yourself.

We foster a culture of continuous learning and growth.  We have weekly painting challenges with prizes for random winners.  This is an exciting way to encourage members to push their boundaries.  We open ourselves up to new techniques and subject matters that we may not have considered before.   And it is inspiring to see the creative ways people interpret the painting prompts.
