*Participation: fine print- We are so happy to have this meeting place, but it is not free for us to rent it. So it's important that we keep our membership roster filled with active members. Thus, we periodically cull through the roster to remove members that have been inactive. This helps keep our rent costs lower and also keeps things humming along here. All in all, we'd rather have a small community with people who are making & sharing art and learning together than a large one with only a few people participating.

Blog Hoppin'!!

(Our blog hops are on hold for the next little while as we launch into some new ventures!)

One of our values here at Thrive is to come alongside people who are working artists and champion their art. Blog hops are one way that we are excited to do this. Take a look at who has joined in on March's art challenges! We invite you to hop around and get to know these Thrive-ers! Join us in encouraging them. It would be awesome if you'd share the blog hop links on your blog or social media sites. Thank you!
