The SAA contacted me in 2015 asking if I would like to be a contributor to the Q & A section in their quarterly magazine 'PAINT'. Being a Professional Artist (PA) of the SAA, I like to get involved wherever possible and sent through some questions and answers that I have been asked often as a Coloured pencil Artist & Art Tutor and these have been included in their latest Magazine (p.31 for those with their own magazine) It answers the following popular questions:
- Large online Art store with free delivery for members as well as special offers and loyalty points (Non members can also shop too but without added benefits)
- Video tutorials by numerous pro Artists recorded in the Newark HQ studio.
- SAA Open days at Newark HQ (in Notts) with access to the Art shop
- Quarterly PAINT magazine for all members covering a wide selection of varied Articles on different mediums
- Large online Art Forums
- Regular competitions (including Artist of the Year)
- A huge searchable database for those looking for Art Tutors & Workshops
- Access pages of Original Art for Sale
- Free Reference photographs (free from copyright)
