What are your summer plans? When it’s warmer it’s always easier to venture out and explore, whether it’s your own neighborhoods or to a foreign land. The sizzling summer sun and fresh air seems to elicit a freedom that isn’t around at other times of the year.

Meanwhile, back at the Your Art Gallery Headquarters, we have our own exciting Summer plans to report…

  • It’s our 3rd Birthday in June, so stay tuned for some flash sales throughout the whole month for you to pass onto your fans & followers.
  • A new thought-provoking contest theme to inspire our members to get out and shoot/draw/paint/create. Details below.
  • We’ll be learning all about being an adult by listening to the Gettin’ Grown Podcast.
  • Obsessing over all of Emily Henderson’s summer designs for creative inspiration.
  • Seeing all of your amazing summery artwork uploaded onto the site (hint hint ;))
  • More details about an amazing YAG contest specifically created for our Gold & Platinum Members.
