Artistree Daily Artists 2021
"What Shape Am I?" by Paula Cloudpainter
The Daily Artists is a group of artists who share a drive to work at their craft every day, whether it's a quick 5 minute sketch or an all day session in the studio. The point is to keep up a daily art practice, big or small. All are welcome to participate and join in. You can share your work online with the Flickr group; and if you like, participate in Art Share meetings, held about every 6 weeks.
The year (which, for the Daily Artists, begins February 1) concludes with an exhibit in the Artistree Gallery in South Pomfret. Artists may use a portion of the space to show a selection of their efforts from the past year.
If you are interested in joining or to find out more, please contact Deborah Goodwin at email@example.com
The Artistree Daily Artists: Getting Started
1. 2021 Daily Artists will kick off on February 1, 2021 and end January 1, 2022. We will hold a meet and greet gathering at the gallery in Pomfret as soon as covid restrictions allow.
2. A completed piece is not required each day, which means you can work on a piece over a series of days/weeks/months, but you must be working DAILY.
3. All mediums are welcome: painting, pencils, charcoal, pastels, photography, clay, fiber arts, digital art, woodworking, etc…We encourage artists to try different mediums than they are used to! The Daily Artist group is about the process of creating artwork, and what you learn along the way.
4. Although you will be working independently, there is a group component. We invite participants to submit at least once every week to the group Flickr page. If you are not familiar with how Flickr works, we have detailed instructions available for you and are happy to help get you set up.
5. We also have Daily Artist Art Shares throughout the year (TBD) at Artistree. In these meetings, 2 or 3 members of the group will be encouraged to share about their creative process for 15 mins each.
6. There is a $60 membership fee to join ($5 per month) which includes the art share meetings and the entry fee for the 2020 Daily Artist Exhibit in the Gallery scheduled for January/February 2022.
