Showcasing Artwork On Your Artistic Journey
Pictures are moments captured in time. Think of a moment that was so precious to you that you wanted to preserve it for eternity. You must’ve had so many of these moments, and each of them became a picture saved on your camera roll. If you’re an artist, you must have taken pictures of your artwork as well. You’ve also shared these cherished memories with your friends, family, and followers.
Photography is an important tool for artists. It is a form of visual art, but it is so much more than that. Artists can use it to take pictures of their artwork, capturing moments of their artistic journey that they can look back on. Let us guide you on how you can use the Rooftop app to showcase your artwork.
Share Your Art On A Platform For Artists
Learning traditional art forms is only half the fun. The other half is sharing your art with friends and family. Capturing moments to share makes the process so much more worth it. But how do you share your artwork with other artists? It’s important to be a part of a community while you’re on your art journey. You’ll be able to learn new techniques, stay updated on current trends, and give and receive feedback. However, using social media won’t give you as much exposure to other artists as you’d hoped. Social media is great for building an audience, but how do you connect with like-minded art enthusiasts?
A platform created for artists and art lovers would help you showcase your artwork to others. Here’s where the Rooftop app comes in. The Community section on the Rooftop app is designed for you to share your art with the world, but especially with people who are part of the art world. There’s no point in sharing your work with an inactive and uninterested audience.
Having your artwork seen by the right people can provide you with a window of opportunity. You might be asked to collaborate, display, or even sell your work if the right people are part of your audience. And these people—artists, art lovers, and enthusiasts—are right here, on the Rooftop app!
Keep Track Of Your Progress Through The Community Section
Art is a journey, and you’ll get better as you keep doing it. If you keep drawing and painting, your art will improve immensely. Posting pictures of your artwork ensures that you have something to look back on as you progress. You’ll be able to see exactly how you improved. Post your artwork after every workshop or course you attend on the Rooftop app. As you grow on your journey, you’ll see exactly how far you’ve come. Each workshop will teach you something new, and each course will improve your artwork by leaps and bounds.
Your art journey may not be simple and straightforward, but it will be filled with satisfaction. Make friends in the community tab and watch them grow as well. Capturing moments of your journey has never been easier.
Share Your Artwork And Meet New People
Meeting others in workshops can be a great way to make friends. Who knows? You might be able to meet your new best friend or partner at an art workshop. Rooftop’s workshops are a great way to network and connect with other art enthusiasts. You can finish art pieces together, sign up for new workshops together, and post your artwork on Rooftop’s community together as well. You’ll be able to strengthen your friendship and document your art journey. Isn’t that wonderful?
Rooftop’s community is your very own virtual art family. You will find mentors here as well as companions. You will teach as well as learn from other artists. Some artists may consider art to be their hobby, while for others it may be their profession. You’ll be exposed to new viewpoints and art styles. The artwork you post in the Community section may turn out to be the inspiration behind someone else’s masterpiece.
