Lightbulb The Watermedia Learning Library

Introduction and Dedication: This Library is being created even as you read this introduction. As a matter of fact, it will never be completed; it is a work in progress (WIP). It is dedicated to all artists, their creativity and innovation in the Watermedia world.


Volunteers Needed: If you would like to help build the Library, select or suggest a category and let us know. Then research it by finding old threads that cover the topic OR add your own new thread with a WIP or demonstration, or a summary gleaned from the threads and your own knowledge. Just post your contribution in the forum with the subject line Learning Library - subject.

Contributions will be reviewed or edited as needed by the new Library project managers. Should your contribution be a link to information other than on the WetCanvas site, be sure to obtain permission to use the information.

The following categories are just the bones. We will add more as suggested by you, and look forward to your participation. Thank You, and Enjoy!

Re: Breaking Ground on the Watermedia Learning Library

Thanks Linda - couldn't have done it without you!!


edit: For those who volunteer to gather information for the Library, here's a little tip on doing a search that is much quicker than using the WetCanvas search, and allows 3-letter words:

Use Google Advanced Search - use www.wetcanvas.com as the domain. You can add a date range if you wish.

Re: Breaking Ground on the Watermedia Learning Library

THANK YOU to both of you for the motivation, time and knowledge you have put into this Library thread. It is a big task, and you have gotten so much done so quickly. Such a contribution to not only Watermedia, but Wet Canvas. I look forward to seeing it grow, with the help of of little community here.
