French Metal Clay Forum

IMPACT Artist Project

At the IMPACT Artist Project we're building a stronger Metal Clay arts community by harnessing the generous attitude of giving and sharing, which is so wide spread in the community, and giving it back to our members. By developing a program where YOU are the focus, our IMPACT members always have someone to trouble shoot their problems with; our guilds have more active and involved members; our teachers are working; our teaching facilities have a waiting list; our conferences are filled; our businesses are growing and thriving; and together we are benefiting. 

IMPACT is constantly expanding our hub of information for facilitating matches between new and interested students with knowledgable veterans of Metal Clay. As our community and resources grow, we are becoming more knowledgeable, better at our craft, and more creative artists, enabling us to foster newcomers in the field and grooming them to become our next generation of leaders.

This video by Patrik Kusac tells you some more about the Yahoo! Metal Clay Group.

Metal Clay Gallery 2 - Yahoo! Group

This is the overflow group from the one above. It only contains pictures. Artists can set up their own album of work and upload pictures to share with the community. It is a fantastic place to browse if you're looking for inspiration.

 

There are various local chapters of the PMC Guild and other metal clay groups who have a presence on Yahoo! Groups. It's worth creating a Yahoo! account and searching the Yahoo! Groups page to see if there's a local group in your area.
