About the Art Topic

Art communities are places where artists meet to share and discuss their artwork. If you are an aspiring young artist or a seasoned professional, surround yourself with other creatives in one of these communities.

About Online Communities on Independent Platforms

These are online communities that are hosted on their own platform, and not a part of a social network like Reddit/Facebook/LinkedIn, or communication platform like Slack and Discord. Although they may utilize community software like circle.so to implement the features of their community, they have their own brand and identity.
