New online Art Alumni Club is up and running

If you’re an alumni artist, you’ll want to look at the new Art Alumni Club website. Professor Susan Van Geest with the help of art alum Heidi Hilbelink, who currently works as the website Blackboard administrator at Dordt, has recently put up a site where former art students can post images of their work, get free art critique from peers, and share art opportunities, events, and ideas. Van Geest sent out an e-mail welcome and description of the club to art alums one Friday and by the following Monday had received forty-five responses. As an artist you can send a digital photo of work you wish to have posted and can set up a short personal profile that tells what you’ve done and what you are doing in art.

Van Geest believes that having a support group that understands the challenges of making art, thinking about art, and living artistic lives can be of great significance for Christian artists and hopes others find this opportunity helpful not only for showing art, but also for sharing fellowship with artists they knew in college or will get to know through the website.
