We believe there is a place for everyone when it comes to making art.
Sat on your own making art can be lonely as there is nobody to talk through your struggles and nobody to bounce ideas off. Getting bogged down with every day life can be overwhelming so finding time to be creative can be difficult.
We have worked through all these struggles so we know first hand how hard it is. We want to share our experiences with you so we can draw out your talent and allow you to shine.
We want to help artists, makers and designers in the area of visual arts by providing
- A free online community where you can mingle with other artists from around the world, whilst receiving fantastic support and encouragement
- Free monthly art briefs that will boost your creativity and you can complete with other artists in a supportive and fun environment
- A structured course that will help build a portfolio and get your work ‘out there’
- A newsboard hosted through our facebook page offering lots of inspiration
- Tips on staying motivated and finding time for your creativity
- An exclusive Membership Hub with Videos, live webinars and worksheets designed to help you with practical and business skills

"This group has been absolutely instrumental in my development as an artist! The support and input from other artists, the ability to get feedback and ask questions as well as the dedication of Michelle and Sharon to the monthly briefs and Make Your Mark class. I am ever so grateful i found them."

"I really wanted to become more involved in the art world but lacked direction and knowledge. Since Joining this group i have evolved my own style, grown in confidence and i am now looking forward to exhibiting my work in the summer. This group is friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable and their challenges keep you inspired throughout the year whether you are a beginner, a practised artist or just doing it for fun. Brilliant inspiration from Michelle, Sharon and artists around the world."

Despite feeling i never have time after running around after my little one, this group has proven that this isn't the case. This is always time. It is the encouragement and regular challenges and briefs that were needed to feel like using my time in a better way. I love this group. Whenever i feel like i'm slipping into a funk i get inspired by either Michelle or Sharon or the members who post their work. At times so much so i feel like i have an artistic fire lit under me 🙂 thanks for all you do.
