Community Volunteers





Welcome to Traditionalists, a group aimed at giving the traditional art community their own unique voice by giving the traditionalists a place to gather, organize, and inform others with the help and guidance of the traditional Community Volunteer team.

:bulletred: Members
Membership is open to anyone and approval is automatic.

:bulletred: Gallery Submissions
Gallery submissions are by invite only. This is to keep messages to your message centre to a minimum since this group's focus is not centred around sharing art, but art-related articles and events.

:bulletred: Favourites
Favourites are open for submissions. Pieces submitted to the favourites folder must fall under the main traditional art categories, and be finished, well presented works - no WIPs, doodles, or blurred photos.

:bulletred: Article Contribution
We accept article contributions from any member of the community.
:bulletblack: Your contribution must be centred around traditional art or the traditional art community on dA.
:bulletblack: Your contribution must adhere to dA's etiquette statement and Terms of Service.

To contribute, simply note our group with a brief proposal of your idea. Once approved, we will promote you to contributor status and provide you with any needed support. After the article has been posted all Contributors will be demoted back to Member status unless otherwise noted.

Traditional Media Month 4
Traditionalists is a hub group for the Traditional Art community, aimed at giving the community their own unique voice by providing a place to gather, organize, and inform others with the help and guidance of the traditional art Community Volunteer team. Everyone is welcome to join and contribute.

Each month is dedicated to one traditional medium. During that month, every one of you can contribute any article regarding the subject. It may be an art feature, a tutorial, an interview with an artist using the particular medium, a review, a note about someone from art history, your documented experiment, and anything else of this kind.

You can see articles prepared for previous months here.

October is for Ink
How to contribute? Simply send a note to  Traditionalists and tell us what would you like to write about (or what art would you like to feature). We'll provide any needed help (including spell-check) and once your journal is finished and scheduled, you'll be promoted to a Contributor to post it. Then you'll be demoted, unless you'll have more articles to submit.
