Groups Directory Update

:love: Group Love :love:


deviantART is an artist dream come true :nod: and caters to artist from all artistic mediums. I know of no other online community that is in constant contact with their members and allows members to run their own groups with specific rules and guidelines that you have decided for your group.

If you are not interested in becoming a founder or administrator of a group, deviantART has hundreds if not thousands of groups for you to search and find one or more that is to your comfort level and liking. Groups are a fantastic way to find other artist to discuss techniques, share idea's, collaborate and make new friends.
Question for the Reader; How often do you search for a new group to join or to find a group that is centered around your interest :-? (Confused) Discuss in the comments area of this journal :)

deviantART Groups Below is a sample collection of groups you will find within deviantART. I hope you enjoy deviantART Groups

:iconword-smiths: - dedicated to excellence

:iconvicious-verse: - dedicated to cathartic or Jungian poetry.

Hi. I was wondering, what is the goal of this article? I assume it's not to list every single group, since there are thousands. If you don't mind my asking. Thanks.

Hello,

I don't mind you asking :)

The goal of this article is to help deviants find as many active and well managed groups as possible :nod:

If you have group(s) in mind please let me know and I will research each group and add accordingly.

Hope this helps,
Jo

Thank-you.

I hope I don't seem to forward doing this, but I'd like to suggest my own group, #Play-With-Your-Food. It's for works of art made entirely out of food and are edible. (That's a bit flexible - one of the pieces features toy stormtroopers.) To the best of my knowledge, there aren't any other groups out there for edible art. I think there's some for cakes only, but nothing for food in general. I hope that fits in to your article. Thank-you. :)

You are very welcome :)

You are not being forward by suggesting your group :no: I visited #Play-With-Your-Food and love the concept of the group and I have joined too :#1:

I will add #Play-With-Your-Food when I update the list :)

Thank you so much,
Jo

:wow: Aww, Jo, this is absolutely wonderful!!! :clap:

Oh and I really do thank you for including #Unframed-Nature too. :heart:

We are very happy to accept this into our folder of News Articles. :aww:

One thing, is that we are actually not just a photography group, and pride ourselves in being a mixed art group of a variety of media!

All media shares our folders, and after over a year of working on this, we are happy that we have a lot more variety of art again! :D

But, we do thank you so much for this! :heart:

Hmm for example I miss #PhotographyWorld on the list about Photography and for the category I told you of, there would be for example #Realm-of-Fantasy which is very popular and a great group. I'll have to look for the other names, and tell you soon ;-)

:wow: Thanks so much for including my group on there (definitely did not expect that)! :hug:

As for your question, I kind of stopped searching for new groups to join through the "search groups" function because it usually doesn't find the sort of groups I'm looking for (usually a bunch that have been abandoned) or either I'm not using the right search words. :shrug: BUT, I certainly keep an eye out for wonderful lists like this or look at what sort of groups other people are in. So, thank you for putting this together! :D

Hello :)

You are very welcome :huggle:

And.......

When you search for groups do you define your search more by using the breakdown on the left "FOCUS, MEDIA, LOCATION, TYPE, WATCHERS and FORMED? I find more active groups when I break down what I am searching for.

Thank you for your kind comment and feedback :)

This is good and helpful.
It would be really nice if you added "Specialist Groups"
I Founded a Group 9 months ago called PhotSeries.......this was an innovative decision and pretty hard to set-up in that d/a could or wold not help in any way.
Now we have over 450 members.
I could also name quite a few more good specialist Groups like this.

Please take a look at: non-real Group..................very interesting
I have to add here also: SOS. This Group is monitoring and helping to get the word out about the Killing of Whales and Dolphins in Japan
StarGroups.........very specialist because it was set-up by 2 of us on d/a to help Group Members andGroup Founders find groups which are good.
I can add some more if you wish.

Awesome article and a great resource of good groups :eager:

Personally at this time I avoid groups outside of any I end up moderating or getting asked to moderate. I don't submit to many often (maybe once or twice a month if I remember I'm in them). So usually I don't go searching out new ones. Most I find when looking for contests and such. Most I've found via friends promoting them. :shrug:

Hello :wave:

Thank you for your kind comment :huggle:

And......

I do understand what you mean regarding submitting :nod: I like to use the group function within Sta.sh and also on the deviation page after submitting, it helps me submit faster :)

Also, friends promoting groups is always a great way to find new groups :#1:
