The arrival of fall signals a time to get back to school, art, and sports. With that, we are featuring one of the leading sport artists in the industry, Robert McFetridge. He fell in love with colored pencils as a teenager and has been teaching high school art for the past 15 years. Learn about his professional work and how he uses his talents to partner with amazing charities to give back.

Since we are focusing on humans in art this month, we wanted to Spotlight the newly designed Prismacolor Soft Core Portrait Set by Morgan Davidson. She was kind enough to sign two tin sets for us to giveaway. Sign up to win and be the envy of your fellow artists!

We also have a NEW Fall Portrait Grizaye Kit that I think you will really enjoy. Skip the planning and sketching and just get to drawing and learning.

It’s not just about a pretty face! Ken Goldman is the author of the Book of the Month, Success in Art: Drawing Hands & Feet. We have a great excerpt that will leave you wanting to learn more. If you are a subscriber, you are entered to win!

Bronwyn Kenna discusses the art of appreciation as she shares her Fan Art. Joanna Hill gives us some words of wisdom from her many years as a teacher and licensed professional Carol Olson educates us on the facts of Art Therapy.

We also have Sema Martin answering how to make money from art that you don’t want to miss, and art instructor Tina Norris visits us to give a step-by-step lesson to create her adorable chipmunk on velvety suede board.

A few other things to note. We have a three-piece poster set, perfect for your art space that is sure to lift your spirits, focusing on Peace, Joy, and Love – something we all need more of! We try to make our items as affordable as possible, so stop by our store regularly to see what’s new. Some supplies are very limited and not advertised, so grab them up if you see something you like!

If you are listed in the 2020 Look Book, you will automatically be included in the 2021 book. You only have to purchase a new Nook if you want to update your picture or information. If you’re not included, you have until December 1st to get listed in the annual directory. The digital copy will be available free, or you can buy the print “at cost”.

Be happy and healthy!
