Shared Art Appreciation

Welcome to the Interest Groups Online Shared Art Appreciation Group.

In this group we explore the diversity of artists from different places and times.

The shared aspect of the group means that members are expected (with help) to email all the group a picture they have selected and inserted, notes or comments and a suitable poem (optional).

Thus members receive from each other in agreed alphabetical order these emails, usually with a few days between. The group size (20) means this is less arduous, and people get to know each other. Members can also email each other comments if they wish. The leader is happy to assist new members.

We also have another Art Appreciation group please see Talking Art.


No fixed time - regular email contact
