What about drawing?

With the expansion of methods and materials, including new technologies used as art mediums, how do you feel about good old fashioned drawing?

Drawing continues to be accessable to everyone. The popularity of zines and d.i.y. culture seems to have contributed to a resurgance of interest in drawing. Can we credit the Royal Art Lodge for renewing interest in drawing?

Where in the 905 is art?

Hello, are you out there? Please send word!
Where in the 905 (area code for suburbia, regions west of Toronto) have you found art, especially visual art? What's happening here, in the suburb which seems to be defined by it's location west of Toronto?

Is there an art community in Mississauga?
Hoping to hear from you...
Sincerely, The 905er

Which do you consider legitimate art forms?

Is what this guy doing art? Is spray paint on public walls art?

What do you think of the term graffitti art? What is urban art?

Is there a heirarchy of mediums?

Is a paint on canvas equal to spray paint on wall?
