Hello!

As you may have noticed, we’re still having website issues from time to time. With CAC growing as quickly as it is (which is awesome!), our host is struggling to keep up. If you have any problems, please try links a second time if they don’t work the first time around and although the site can be slow right now, it will work eventually if you just give it a little time. We’re sorry for any inconvience and thank you to everyone for being so patient!

So this brings us to my question for the day…

How do you keep focused when things don’t go your way?

I’d love to hear your answer in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the great list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

It’s a good idea to treat yourself every once in a while. Life is stressful, work is hard, and the pace that we we’re constantly moving at is enough to make anyone feel rough at times.

So my question today is…

What are your artistic indulgences? How do you treat yourself when it comes to creativity? 

Please let us know in the comments below (or share over Twitter & Facebook) and be sure to take a look at the awesome list of job opportunities below.

Have a wonderful day!

stranger - Joshua Vegas

“Stranger” by CAC Member Joshua Vegas (@joshuavegas)
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

I’ve decided to do something a little different with the list today. We like to take our members suggestions into consideration (we’ve had plenty of ideas discussed about the best way to arrange the lists) and it’s always nice to switch things up every once in a while just to have something new & fresh, so I’ve split the jobs up into each province.

Do you prefer it this way? The old way? Be sure to let me know in the comments below!

I’ve also tracked down a few more websites to collect jobs from (which is awesome!), but we’re always looking for more to offer you as many opportunities as possible, so if you know of any others, please let us know in the comments section below.

Have a wonderful day!

How do you cool down when summer heats up?

Hello!

It’s been a hot summer so far, which can sometimes make work difficult. Brutal heat and humidity can equal stifling offices/sets/studios, cranky co-workers, and materials that refuse to set and dry.

How do you cope and work through the heat?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

We’re going to be switching things up a bit this week with Ryan (our Business Manager) starting to help me with some of the job lists. As CAC continues to grow, my workload is increasing. Ryan, at the same time, is busy taking full-time courses. We’re hoping between the two of us we’ll be able to handle the lists each and every weekday.

This week, I’ll still be doing the lists until Thursday, then Ryan will handle Friday’s. After that, Ryan will take care of Monday and Friday’s job lists as well as Monday’s calls for submissions & auditions list. I’ll be handling Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

So be sure to give Ryan a “Hello!” on Friday’s list!

And, of course, I have a great list of jobs for you below to start off your week.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

SUBMIT YOUR ART TO BE FEATURED ON CAC! We have a NEW place to add your art for our lists! To make things easier to submit your art to be featured on our job lists and calls for submissions & auditions lists, we’ve added an album here on the website (so members no longer have to use the outside Flickr group).

We’d love to feature all kinds of work – from photographers to accessories designers to painters to landscape designers.

Each day a piece will randomly be chosen to be the featured art appearing on our job lists or calls for submissions & auditions lists on the front page of our website and is promoted over our Twitter, Facebook, and the Members Activity area of our website.

Click here to add your art now or visit: http://canadaartsconnect.com/forums/topic/list-art/

Hello!

It’s June 1st and summer feels like it’s already in full swing in my neighbourhood. I’ve been taking full advantage of the beautiful weather by enjoying long walks to get inspiration, reading at the park, and working at my desk with the windows wide open and the gorgeous breeze coming in. What about you?

How does your routine change in the summer?

Do your work habits change? Are there certain types of artistic practices you only do in the summer? Do you get involved with any events?

Let us know in the comments below after you check out the list of today’s opportunities.

Have a wonderful day!

Tear of the Ice Queen - Jason Nelson

“Tear of the Ice Queen” by Jason Nelson (@stonesculptor
[Want to see your art here? Click here for more info.]

Hello!

Have you submitted your art to our Flickr group but it still hasn’t been chosen as one of our featured pieces? Here are some reasons of why that might be…

1. Pieces must fit the slideshow on the front page.

  • If the pic of your art is small, it won’t fit the necessary space requirements. The original pics must be considerably larger than the ones seen at the top of the posts (bigger is better).
  • Pics that are more horizontal fit the space better as opposed to vertical pieces (if your pic is large enough, vertical pieces can still be used).

2. Artists must be identifiable.

  • If your Flickr user name is different from your CAC name, then I’m not able to properly credit the work and therefore can’t use it. If this is an issue, simply send us a message over Flickr letting us know your CAC user name.

If you haven’t submitted your art yet, be sure to check out and join our group so that we can showcase your work to the thousands of people that drop by our site every day. http://www.flickr.com/groups/canadaartsconnect/

Then, of course, take a look at today’s job list below!

Have a wonderful day!
