The 5 Best Art & Painting Magazines

Posted 21 May 2018   |   606 views   |   Art & Photography   |   Comments (0) With the 5 best art and painting magazines from Pocketmags, you’ll never be stuck staring at a blank canvas for hours again. Discover the expert advice, guidance, tutorials and motivation you need to create the art and paintings you love!

Here’s a riddle - what is free of boundaries, open to interpretation, communicates through visuals and can be described as a masterpiece? No, it has nothing to do with the silent adventures of Charlie Chaplin in a 20th century motion-picture, but it has everything to do with the wonderful world of art and painting.     


Illustrator, painter or all around artist, creating beautiful pieces of art takes patience, technique and above all, infinite creativity. You can take it up as a soothing hobby or pursue it as a serious career, all you need is to unlock your imagination, choose a palette of colours and let your hand and artistic instrument of choice move together as one.
