Only art related posts are allowed. Our goal is to create a casual environment for teens to show off their artistic skills, or to inspire hesitant teens to draw, paint, etc. and get positive feedback, thus enhancing their self esteem. Teens who have Facebook pages are encouraged to join in addition to their parent(s), and it can be a means for them to connect with other teens in the group. Any art style (2D or 3D) is welcome and encouraged (no sexually explicit artwork is allowed). Negative comments will not be tolerated. Group admins reserve the right to remove any inappropriate posts and unsubscribe members without notice when deemed necessary.
