Top art magazines

Artists may not be surprised by this fact, but Americans for the Arts reports that in the United States, if a young adult participates in the arts, then they are four times more likely to receive recognition for academic achievements. Becoming an artist, especially one that finds recognition, is no easy task. Whether you create art as a hobby or a profession, it is important to learn constantly, and take as much help and instruction as is offered.

Art students, and anyone with an interest in art, would do well to subscribe to top art magazines and take advantage of the information they contain. Fortunately, these magazines are available in formats other than print. They are accessible online, and even on some mobile devices. One such publication is the International Artist Magazine, which profiles internat

Current art news

According to Gareth Harris, a reporter for the New York Times, the cultural capitals for art are changing thanks in large part to the digital age. Harris writes, “the notion of what defines an art capital needs to broaden, as artists lay down roots far beyond the traditional power bases.” The traditional border around regional art scenes, he says, are being brought down with the help of digital resources.

One such digital resource that is helping to change the art scene’s landscape is The Artist Magazine, which is one of the top art magazines around that publishes current art news, info about international artists, tips on techniques and special effects, and marketing and business topics.

The Artist magazine is not the only site on the web that helps change the landscape of the art wor

Possessing a skill or interest in the visual arts can be a rewarding and enriching lifelong hobby. Art is not only fascinating to those who spend time on art forums or subscribe to fine art magazines, but it is a priceless historical tool that has unlocked countless doors to the past. Art has also been shown as an invaluable vehicle for learning.

Although there is overwhelming evidence that children learn better though hands on learning, it seems odd that funding for visual arts education continues to decline. According the National Education Association, when educational budget cuts are made, visual arts are usually among the first programs to go. Of course, this trend is nothing new, as the educational system in the United States has long been known to undervalue the arts.

Despite the fact that art educa

Did you know that about two million weddings take place in the U.S. every year? If you are planning a wedding, you know how much work goes into the process. The average couple, in fact, spend 18 months planning the whole event out. An important part of the event is the reception that takes place after the ceremony, and there are several items you will need for the occasion. Here are three easy tips for having an affordable, beautiful, and less stressful wedding reception.

1. Plan a Color Scheme

If you want to reduce planning stress, color schemes, though seemingly complicated, will actually simplify the planning process. Instead of looking at every possible flower color for a centerpiece, for example, you would only be looking for red and turquoise options. Instead of checking out ev

Where to Be Inspired

International artists

Not every piece of art is inspired by a sunset, or an old couple holding hands, or a country in turmoil. Sometimes inspiration comes from the most mundane places, the most ordinary places, and, yes, sometimes the most cliched places, like art magazines.

The life of an artist is not as glamorous as many people would like to believe. The vast majority of artists in the world are not full time professional artists, but instead hold down “nine to five” jobs like the rest of us, and practice their art in their spare time. To be able to paint or draw or sculpt for a living is truly the dream, but rarely the reality.

So for those millions of artists whose names you have yet to hear, inspiration can easily come from something so simple as an international artist magazine. Being of limited means (and time), st
