art/craft materials and techniques (from brushes, paper, paints,
canvas, and airbrushes to painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, matting and framing,
and more), competitions, exhibitions, art history, kids'
korner, art world news, and more."
- The newsletter carries advertising blurbs and the text seems to relate to the products sold by the advertisers.
We have only looked at one issue so
we can't say much about the value of the articles. If you sign up --
please let us know
if you find the information helpful.
- They suggest you save each issue on your computer -- so it does look like they do not plan to keep an
archive file -- ... pity. Please correct us if
there is an archive.
