The Saint Louis Drawing & Painting Group


The Saint Louis Drawing & Painting Group

We are a group of artists who started out over on We meet several times weekly in informal settings to share art and ideas.

Location: Saint Louis
Members: 38
Latest Activity: Mar 26

The Saint Louis Drawing & Painting Group offers an environment for artists of all levels to converge and find their way creatively. We hope to offer comunity, training, information and other resources that guide the artist to self-improvement and challenge in areas they can share passion and enlightement.


We have a wide range of artists, print-makers, painters, models, performers, poets and musicians gathering in this space. No matter whether you are a rough beginner or a seasoned professional, your love of the arts is welcome here.


Though we don't formally critique unless it is requested or a specific forum is set for such things, we do like to encourage and foster the self-development of an artist and their work. We like to make connections between artists and open avenues for promoting, selling and networking about arts.


Though this site only lists a few members, over on our meetup site there are upwards of 500 members. We also just had our 1,000th event. Come check us out!

here's a link to the official copyright guidelines for works of art:

Mark Florida, whose shop is located inside Componere in the Loop, does an excellent job in scanning and making prints. His main business is framing and he's excellent at it. I've had him frame a lot of art for me.

As soon as you create an original work, it is copyrighted. You don't have to sign it, you don't have to date it, and you don't have to file it with the government. If someone infringes your copyright — that is, if someone uses it without your permission — you are entitled to your actual damages. If you fill out the copyright forms and file them with the government, then you are entitled to statutory damages for infringement. That is useful because:  (1) it is often hard to prove actual damages; and (2) for most small artists and other creators, statutory damages are much larger than actual damages.

Belle Be, not sure how you get your art copyrighted? Usually, I don't do anything besides sign my name and date to my work and that is enough. I think the Componere Gallery in the Delmar Loop does good prints. I usually also just sell originals, so really I have not as much idea as some others might,

How do you get your artwork copy-written & get prints made for a reasonable price?
