Is a community of individuals who practice 2D visual arts together within a group setting. Meetups are sponsored by the Art Verve Academy. They are open to the public free of charge with the intent to provide support for creatives, encourage social learning and cultivate skills.

Exchange new ideas, tools, tips, or techniques with other like-minded individuals! We're an active group of adults who practice the Visual Arts across all generations, from beginner to advanced.

Community Forum Online

Exchange new ideas, tools, tips, or techniques with other like-minded individuals.

This is a safe place where the community may discuss work in progress or share information without the ramifications of social media or full exposure to the internet.

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

Private Forum

The Art Verve forum gives us a safe and supportive environment where we may learn from each other. We post images of our artwork, whether in progress or finished, where we may ask for constructive feedback free from ridicule.

In progress artwork or work from beginners may not be appropriate to post on social media, this platform is for Art Verve Community members only and is moderated.
