I also love making art. And while I would by no means place myself in the same category of a "real" artist, I do love creating and playing with materials in an attempt to make something beautiful.
I think art is good for the soul. Not just for adults, but for kids, too. And I believe even the smallest children can appreciate and enjoy great art--like the stuff-you-find-in-museums great.
I recently learned about Google's Art project via this post at Chalk in My Pocket. You can visit some of the best art museums from around the world and look at all the artwork up close and personal. I love the zoom feature!
I thought I'd share 10 art blogs that really inspire me--there are so many art teachers and artistic people out there--there's no end to the beauty.
The Crafty Crow (I realize that listing this one is like saying, "Hey have you heard of this cool thing called libraries? You can borrow books there for free!" but I have to list it because it is such an amazing collection and also because it's most likely how I found all the rest of these sites...)

What are your favorite art blogs?
I came across this art book list on the Pineapple Paintbrush that got me on the art kick this week. I plan on sharing our favorites with you in the next few days.
