The ACPN is a online network for Australian and New Zealand Coloured Pencil artists, it started in 2009 and has grown to over 350 registered website users and over 1200 users in our Facebook Group.
The ACPN network consists of the website, newsletter and collaborative projects such as an annual Calendar and Online Exhibitions and a online Directory and various social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. All of these together and connects Australian and New Zealand artists who are generally slightly isolated from the wider coloured pencil community and allows us to have somewhere that we can promote our work, share with others and as a whole increase the profile of Coloured Pencil Art from in our Region and raise opportunities for Artists.
We have advertising positions on our website homepage, members home page, newsletter and directory to reach members of the Australian and New Zealand community interested in art, and specifically coloured pencils. To enquire or to book adverstising spaces please contact Belinda at [email protected] for further inquiries. Artists are welcome apply to advertise your up and coming workshop or exhibition.
We welcome sponsorship and support for our community in many various ways and would like to invite you to contact us if you have any products, information or events that would be of interest to our network. We would like to thank your past sponsors ArtHouse Direct / S&S Wholesale who sponsored our end of year online exhibition for the past 4 years.
