We recently created a new poll at Artpromotivate.
“What would you like to see here?”
We are interested in hearing what you, our readers, would like us to write about.
Artists from all walks of life visit this site, with varying backgrounds. We are interested in hearing what you want to see here, so YOU can help shape the future of Artpromotivate.
If you have particular knowledge in either of these areas, we invite you to share it by means of a guest-post. You will receive a free link to your art website, and if you include links to Twitter, Facebook pages, and art blogs, we will include these as well.
For details on guest-posting, please visit this page: Artpromotivate Guest Posting Guidelines.
Please only vote for 5 of the below poll categories. If you feel the need to vote for more, do so.
Refer to the screenshot for the link to the poll, which is in the sidebar at the right.
ARTIST POLL – What Would You Like us to Write About?
- How to Create an Art Website
We have written about various free artist website services, but have not yet explored creation of an actual art website on its own domain. This is how many artists have success on the internet. Check this poll box if you want tutorials on how to create one.
- Drawing & Painting Techniques
These will not be “how to draw or paint” demonstrations as seen at many other sites. I will explain various techniques I have used over the years for drawing and painting, with mentions of art tools needed. If you would like to know more about painting or drawing techniques, please vote for this in the poll, or mention it below. Of course, if you have any art technique to share, please consider sending us a guest-post.
- Photoshop Tutorials
If you would like to know more about Photoshop, please let us know. But, try to be specific about what you would like to learn about by leaving a comment or contacting us. We have already included some Photoshop tutorials here on how to create a signature and watermarking, which may be found in the top navigation bar.
- Corel Painter Tutorials
We would like to know if there is a genuine interest in this topic. These tutorials, if featured here, may be similar to the Photoshop tutorials. We welcome anyone who has advanced knowledge of Corel Painter to write guest-posts for us.
- How to Sell Art on Ebay
Artists can sell art through Ebay, but only will be successful if it is done right. To learn more about selling art through the Ebay auction site, check this option.
- Creating Art Videos for Youtube
This is something we have explored before, especially as it pertains to slideshows and instructional videos.

This is already the primary topic of most of the articles here at Artpromotivate. If you would like to keep learning about how to sell art online, please check this poll option.
- Portfolio Sites for Artists
Portfolio sites are great for networking, especially if they include groups and commenting features. We have talked about numerous online gallery websites here already. But, if you would still like to see more free portfolio websites featured at Artpromotivate, please inform us by voting or commenting below.
- Art History Articles
The idea here is to write about certain historical artists, such as Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Leonardo Da Vinci, Picasso, Salvador Dali, and more. Also, this category may include an explanation of certain art movements – impressionism, surrealism, post-modernism, etc.
The intention is to make Artpromotivate as much an educational resource as an art promotional and inspirational source.

We have already featured several websites to find updates for new art competitions. Also, we have talked about Art Takes Times Square, the art competition to take place on giant billboards this summer.
