The Gals are talking about art groups in this episode. You will learn how to start one and how to runs swaps in those art groups. Although Katie and Loni see the value in local art groups, their discussion is mostly about online art groups (specifically Facebook groups). Yes, there are many ways to go about it, but this is the way they do it so this is what they are telling you about.
We do have a couple of links for you! Katie talked about the site she uses to randomize swap lists and you can find that at https://www.random.org/lists/.
Since The Gals specifically talk about Facebook groups we thought it would probably be a good idea to post a link on how to make a group on Facebook. You can read about that here.
And because we don’t want to discourage people leaving their homes and socializing in person while doing and talking about art, here is a nice little article about joining local art groups http://faso.com/fineartviews/23623/ten-reasons-for-the-emerging-artist-to-join-a-local-art-group.

Next week The Gals will be back to talk about dioramas; hopefully they will have the ones they are working on finished in time (mail is slow only when you are really waiting on impossibly tiny, plastic unicorns and kittens to arrive), so until next week… make some cool shit, yo!
