Welcome to the ART YARD CREATE community

This is an open forum for artists and creative people of all ages.  


ART YARD will post an idea to encourage and inspire art making, discussion and community. Use whatever materials you have available to artistically respond to the idea of the week.  A tiny doodle, a painting, a sculpture, a photograph – the manifestation is completely up you. 


  • To post find the thread below which begins with CREATE:, then you may "post a comment" (which can include a picture, a video, or text). 

  • You can also start a thread on another topic to share your ideas, pictures and artwork.


ART YARD is a sanctuary where everyone is treated with kindness and respect. We are a community of creative thinkers, expansive dreamers, and well-educated art makers.  


Please note that disrespectful content will not be tolerated.  This page will be monitored to insure we uphold the standards of the ART YARD community.
