This website exists to help people realize their artistic vision. Dabbleon is loosely divided into two categories: form and content. Form in visual art refers to the visual and material characteristics of a work of art. Content refers to the meaning or ideas associated with a work of art. The distinction between the two is sometimes difficult to determine, but it is a useful way to break things up. Form is what the art is and content is what the art means.
Materials and techniques are part of form. We are continually adding to our library of material and technical demonstrations. We do not espouse any hierarchy of materials. The best material is the one that will help you achieve your desired outcome. The best technique is the one that will help you achieve your desired outcome. We are here to introduce you to as many means of visual expression as possible. Use the contact form to tell us if there is something you would like to know more about.
Ideas and meaning are an equally important part of any kind of art. Our goal is to give as much attention to the development of this aspect of your art practice as we do to issues of form. We will be posting videos of artists discussing their work as well as reviews of art exhibits, books and anything else we find relevant or helpful. If you find something that you think would interest us please send us a link and your name if you would like us to acknowledge you if we use your idea in a post.
We are here to teach what we know and to learn from anyone who wants to share.
