Reviewer Applications are always OPEN.

The Institute is a faraway place designed for artists of all mediums who want to improve the artistic, technical and creative side of their work.

It's an academy, a classroom, a home, a getaway, an information desk and so much more. It is our sanctuary and asylum for the wonderfully mad. Becoming a part of the community allows you to find a mentor, or become one.

What is a mentor?

"A positive role model, an adviser, an experienced friend. Somebody from outside a person's immediate circle taking a special interest can make an enormous difference."

"a one-to-one, non-judgemental relationship in which an individual voluntarily gives time to support and encourage another. This is typically developed at a time of transition in the mentee's life, and lasts for a significant and sustained period of time."

We welcome those of all levels.

This is what we agree to, we hope you do the same.

:iconthebunnyrehab: Welcome to the Bulletin! This will be updated regularly with notices and other things!

First of all, I'd like to thank you all for taking part in this group and wish you a very happy new Year! A new beginning for everyone, how did you start yours?

Hey everyonE! This is just a very small update, I havent had internet for the past few days mostly due to a fire and any connection has been rather unstable. I have a few messages to answer, so I'll be getting to those.

on another note, I may extend the contest to March 30th.

I also wonder if you guys would be interested in hearing art tips, news, interviews and anything else i can think of. Weekly, bi-monthly or daily?

If you have any concerns, please Note me or the group.
The Institute's chat room is here. Drop by and say hello. :heart:
The first term is now here and the Mentor and Mentee pairings can be found here


"Parental Love" Contest!
The group's first contest is here! The contest's main theme is Parental Love. See more info here

All forms of art are accepted. Entries are to be submitted to the current contest folder.

The 2012 tasks are my personal decisions to become a better artist, and so I'll be inviting the group to join me!

Founder's tasks
I don't hate myself, I swear but I'm hell bent on improving to the best of my potential. So don't view your founder as a masochist. u.u Anyway, the founder's tasks are tasks TheBunnyRehab has set themselves in attempt to become a better artist. It's not required for anyone who wants to join me to do all of these or even try any of these. But I want to make the most of 2012. I'm not getting any younger here! :noes:
These won't be judged. Their just personal tasks, that can be done alone or in groups. The following tasks can be combined, e.g two birds with one stone basically (or more if you're cheeky).

2012 Tasks include;
Art Related
:bulletblue: 50 themes (0/50)
:bulletblue: 4 elements (0/4)
:bulletblue: 7 sins (0/7)
:bulletblue: 7 virtues (0/7)
:bulletblue: 12 zodiac (0/12)
:new::bulletblue: 200 hands and feet (22/400) (18 hands, 4 feet)
Why the hands and feet? Because we all hate them, and I personally avoid them like the plague, but that's no way to improve. So by Jan 2013 and I will have 200 hands drawn, and 200 feet drawn in several poses and perspectives.

Pixel Related
:bulletblue: 200 themed (I'm really slacking in my pixel work) (0/200)
:bulletblue: 4 elements (0/4)
:bulletblue: 7 sins (0/7)
:bulletblue: 7 virtues (0/7)
:bulletblue: 12 zodiac (0/12)
:bulletblue: 12 Chinese Zodiac (0/12)

Writers can also attempt the art related tasks in form of literature!

I also want to try a raffle. So anyway, anyone willing to give feedback, donate prizes, help with judging etc. Please leave a comment or note me!

You can also send a note to the group about your own contest!

Thank you for your time. Don't forget to be awesome and have a fantastic day! Be inspired!

- RB

Oh my gosh! I just happened to stumble upon your group today! Do you think I'll still be able to enter some classes?
TheBunnyRehab Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Student General Artist
With the way things are working it seems I'll have to reorganize classes, I've been a way for a while and it seems tutors have not been able to find a lot of time. You may not be able to enter classes this month, but I will notify you if and when its possible.

I'd just like to let you know in advance, I'm going to have to withdraw membership of this club, for personal reasons. I will not be attending this term.
TheBunnyRehab Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012  Student General Artist
