What is ArtyFacts?
Artyfacts is a monthly and a daily digest newsletter that pulls together news and features about art, photography, design, writing, crafts, making, and makers of any kind, amateur, and pro. All are welcome.
The monthly edition is primarily a collection of feature length articles, with a tools and resources section to inspire and help people with their creations.
The Daily Digest is focussed mainly on short newsbites (two or three current stories every day). However, there is occasionally some crossover between the two editions in terms of article size and style.
I would be very interested in your opinion about ArtyFacts, and if you have any suggestions to improve it. Please let me know as I'm happy to tweak and polish, to make it the best and most useful arts newsletter possible. You can send me your thoughts here: mailto:email@example.com
Oh, and please, please, please pass on the links to your friends, family, and fellow artists. The more readers there are, the greater the motivation to keep on building a newsletter to increasingly inspire and benefit everyone.
You can subscribe to the monthkly edition right from the newsletter itself, and you’ll get each issue delivered via email. Here’s the link to ArtyFacts Month: https://artyfacts.davefoster.co.uk/
There's no subscription for the Daily Digest just yet, as that goes out on Twitter and Facebook only (for now). I may ramp that up to be included in a daily email at some point in the future but I don't want to sicken people with too many emails just yet. Here’s the link to the Daily Digest: https://artyfactsnews.com/daily/
Send in your story
There's also an online article questionnaire for readers to send me their stories so I can do a write-up on individual artists and makers. Please feel free to complete the form and send it to me if you would like your work to be featured in a future issue. Here's the link: https://artyfactsnews.com/questionnaire/
The ArtyFacts App
If you’d like to have ArtyFacts (and all the above links) at your fingertips, guess what? There’s an app for that! It’s actually a web-based app so there’s nothing to download and take up valuable space on your phone, and because it lives in the cloud, you never have to update anything.
Whenever something is added or improved it all happens in the cloud so whenever you open it up, you always have the most current version right in the palm of your hand without having to lift a finger.
All you need it this link: https://davefoster.co.uk/app Once the app is open you can save a button to your Home Screen if you’re on an iPhone, or make a shortcut if you’re on an Android… simple. Here’s the link again to get you started: https://davefoster.co.uk/app
