From tips & tricks, to top-notch art resources you can use to learn.

I came up with the idea for Carter Art as a college student during the Covid-19 Lockdown, always being presented with projects to do, and assignments to complete, I found it rather difficult to gather all of the information I needed purely online.  There was no one place I could go that was all about art, and would help with my research (at least not one that was free), so I decided to create Carter Art.  An online resource that is completely free to use, and dedicated to all things art.  

We run off the basis of other artists and students sharing their knowledge of art through the free blog writer.  (To sign up, click here

I wanted to create Carter Art not only to help art students with gathering resources, but also to give anyone who was interested in learning art a place they could go.  

I've designed Carter Art to be ever-evolving, people always sharing new articles, getting feedback on their art, a place for artists to gather and make connections, many people just use this site for their portfolio.  I plan on growing this community into something amazing for everyone.

A Bit About Carter Art
What is Carter Art?

Carter Art is a free online art resource platform.  You can share your works with the community in the gallery, store your own portfolio in your member's tab, and ask for helpful feedback on your art in groups.  You can also write articles to benefit the art community, and share your knowledge.  

Why Use Carter Art?

On Carter Art, you are offered a completely safe environment to share your work; no spam, no harsh comments, any feedback is either positive, or given as a constructive criticism.  Rather than being in competition with other artists to see whose post is more popular, on Carter Art, everyone is here to help you improve. 

Artists use Carter Art to hold their portfolio, share works, and offer back to the art community to help up and coming artists.  

We also offer a large range of online resources for all artists, and members have the opportunity to write their own articles as well.  

We also allow anyone to upload an art video they made on YouTube, Vimeo, Twitch, etc...

Carter Art Members vs Non-Members

Carter Art offers everything for free, non-member, have unrestricted access to all resources and articles, and viewing the gallery.  

When you become a member (completely free) you have the opportunity to write your own articles, share your art with all of us, store your own online portfolio, join, and create groups of your own, and also get feedback on the art you share.  

Does Carter Art Restrict Any Artworks?

Carter Art does not restrict any forms, types, styles, or media of artworks, you can share your art with all of us in the gallery tab, and also have it stored in your personal members gallery/portfolio.  We are open to having all forms of art shared on here, but we do restrict vastly inappropriate art from being added (that said, we do not restrict life drawings, or other similar such art).  

Why Share Your Art Here & Not Social Media?

Carter Art encourages you to share your art both on here, and on social media, the difference, and benefit we have, is the advantage of being solely an art community.  This means 2 things:

1.  You are not bombarded with distracting images that have nothing to do with art.  

2. When you post your art on social media looking for feedback for improvement, usually you don't find it, either because people are just going to say nice things, or people will just put your work down and say that it's bad.  

Carter Art offers you a place to share your art, no matter what skill level you are at, and receive constructive feedback on how to grow your skill level.  

Who is Carter Art For?

Carter Art is for anyone who is looking for a safe environment to share their art with artists alike.  

For students to gather resources, and gain knowledge of art.  

For the first time drawer, who's got dreams of being an artist.
