Wow! There are so many great comments here about why you should join art groups. I can't tell you how important art groups have been in helping me to develop confidence to step out of my comfort zone.

I started with joining a local county art group, then branched out into the region, then state (TnWS) and now national such as, Southern WC Society (18 states)which shows feature the most well known southern watercolorists such as Dean Mitchell and many others! It is so inspiring to have your own work hang next to the big names in art. It gives you a real boost!

Recently I went ahead and became a member of KWS (Kentucky) and had a painting accepted in the Aqueous USA.

Artist are exposed to stellar work and it really motivates the you to work harder and better.
