I'm not personally affiliated with the Art House Co-Op of Atlanta, GA, but I have recently become a huge fan and a major participant in their projects.
The Art House Co-Op creates projects that artists all over can take part in--not just artists in Atlanta. I, for example, live in Phoenix!
Currently there are 2 open projects that you can be a part of--the Pen Pal Painting Exchange and the Scavenger Book.
I highly encourage you to check out the link above, and then when you are on the page, scroll down a bit and on your left you'll see the link for the Pen Pal Painting Exchange--it's an awesome idea--one canvas is sent to 10 different artists, one at a time, and each one paints something on it, until it is a complete piece. I'm very excited for the canvas I am participating in to reach me--and very excited to see the results of the other canvases.
