What does the New Year mean to you and your art?
A new year means new art! We've made our artist resolutions for the year here and we know you have too. Over the last two weeks we posed this question on social media and at Jerry's Artarama online store:
This week on Jerrysartarama.com, we took a poll asking artists what they wanted to accomplish over this next year in art? We received thousands of interesting answers and everything from "make more time for art" to "get a gallery showing" to "learn to draw stickmen neatly for a change."
Here are the results of our "Do you have any art related resolutions or plans for 2014?" Poll:
As you can see, the biggest resolution was to create more art and spend more time creating art. Next up at 51%, more artists want to experiment with new art techniques.50% of those polled wanted to finish their art projects.Tied at 46.2% of those polled want to shop at Jerry's and save more money on great art supplies while others wanted to get better organized in their art studio. Others really want to sign up for art workshops and to learn to sell more of their artwork.
Well, we at The Splatter will be bringing you plenty of articles and content this year based on these results. Get ready for a year of learning new techniques, art contests for you to enter and win prizes. We will have more What's the Buzz?- product reviews by artists like you and tons of new product reviews to help you create more!
The Splatter will also teach you more about how to work as a professional artist, organize your studio like the greats and give you even more tips and tricks. Also be on the lookout for our 5 Part Investigative Series on "How to Stop Eating Your Paints" coming in March (just kidding).
And Jerry's Artarama will continue to bring you more savings and discounted prices on the best, top quality art supplies and materials in the industry. You can count on Jerry's to support your creative passion.
Remember, with Jerry's, this year you can Save More, Create More!
