Online Community Forum

We use a private online forum to discuss art or artwork between learners, each other, and instructors within our community. It cultivates social learning and provides support for other creatives.


The forum gives us a safe and supportive environment where we may learn from each other. In progress artwork or work from beginners may not be appropriate to post on social media.

Here we may post images of our artwork, whether in progress or finished, where we may ask for constructive feedback free from ridicule.



Our forum is open to any member of the Art Verve Community from classes, workshops, meetups, or instructors.

It is free of charge but, you will need an account to log in as it is private for members only. We'll send you a link with instructions to create an account.



The forum is private for members only. To get access:

1) Take any class or workshop with the Art Verve Academy in Tucson, Arizona, to become a member.

2) Visit Meetup.com/Art-Verve and join one of our online virtual drawing or painting sessions, to become a member. We will give you access when the meeting starts after you have asked for your email address. We will send you a link with instructions to create an account.
