Lets hear it for PAINTING!

At present, our web site is still under construction. We are making an effort to present you with our content as soon as possible.  The emphasis of our site is on painting advocacy.  Our aim is to promote a highly cultured wholistic view of painting.  If this topic is of interest to you. Check this site later, please.

In brief, you should know the following about us: this website was established in 2009.  Our mission is to support painters, by providing them with some helpful approaches to handling the often cumbersome social and intellectual terrain of the academic environment and broader society. 

It was initially conceived in response to stories from students who have encountered hostility or just confusion towards painting in academic environments.  Initially our hope is to help young painters, who are for the most part unprepared emotionally and intellectually for these challenges, with tools so they can have a healthy long term sense of social well being as a painter.

Most of all, we do not want this to be an "us against them" type of website.  In keeping with the wholistic intent of the website, a major effort will be made to be embracing of the art world as a whole, even though we promote a specific niche within the broader framework.

Honestly at this point we have no idea how or if this is going to work.  Don't expect too much from this website at first, as it is likely to evolve over time.  So keep checking back... sorry for the delay.
