Official Community Spaces
As a community of botanical artists, we create virtual opportunities to come together, both on the Art Feed on our website and at our live monthly webinars. Other spaces we own, operate, and moderate include our official Instagram and Facebook accounts for Draw Botanical.
Creating healthy communities within our official Draw Botanical online spaces is vital to us. This is why we have decided to develop a list of community guidelines. We hope this list provides clarity for what our company stands for and helps everyone navigate our official Draw Botanical spaces responsibly.
- We believe in treating others with respect. Harassment or hateful conduct will not be tolerated. This includes but is not limited to discrimination, bullying, hate speech, or any targeted attack on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, or socioeconomic status. Comments that violate this policy posted to any of our official online spaces will be deleted, hidden, and the user in violation may be banned.
- We believe in engaging in healthy discussions. Respectful conversations help us understand the world better. We also understand that not everyone shares the same lived experiences. It’s important that we are able to have discussions without engaging in harmful behavior such as online bullying.
- We believe in establishing healthy boundaries. Making friends online can be a fantastic experience, but it is essential to be mindful of the type of information you share. If someone in the online community makes you feel unsafe, please practice good social media self care and block, report, and/or contact the appropriate site administrators. If this happens on our official Draw Botanical online spaces, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the date of the incident(s), the platform on which it occurred, and any screenshots you believe to be relevant.
- We believe in having fun! We encourage you to find bright spots within our content and community that bring you joy! It’s also important that we all work together towards keeping our community safe for others to navigate. Listen to each other, learn from each other, and create fun in a way that doesn’t harm anybody else.
- We believe all who follow these community guidelines are welcomed here. Whether you are a seasoned artist or you are entirely new to art creation — you belong here. We encourage you to engage (or not engage) with our content in whichever way feels best for you.
If you disregard these guidelines, we reserve the right to remove you from our official online spaces.
Art Feed Conduct
Please only post relevant content you’ve developed incorporating Draw Botanical methods to the Art Feed and Portfolio spaces. We define relevant content as:
- Your own botanical illustrations of subjects found in nature (ie. plants, trees, birds, insects, etc.)
- Photographs of botanical subjects
- Drawing exercises and works in progress (ie. toning exercises, sketch pages, etc.)
Respect all artwork. We value all creators in our community and believe that everyone deserves respect, especially in relation to their hard work.
Avoid overt criticism by keeping suggestions positive. When critiquing work on our Art Feed, the goal is to help our community of artists learn and grow through the joy of botanical drawing. Our focus is on the joy of the process, and the quality of the end result is a bonus! We ask that you be mindful of the impact negative words have on developing artists and make sure to keep your comments encouraging and positive.
