It is very important to our mission at Chautauqua Visual Arts to be able to share as many resources with you as possible. Thus, we have created a space to do just that, so artists may continue to sustain their creative lives. Our blog will also feature “of the moment” resources, too.
If you have resources you would like to share, feel free to email us at email@example.com and we will be happy to add them to this page! Thanks for visiting and happy researching!
