At Photofocus, we know times are tough right now for a lot of creative professionals. Whether you’re at home with your kids, have had photoshoots canceled or just wondering what’s next, we hope that our latest project will help you fill the creative void.

We’ve teamed up with ThinkTAP and Skylum to create The Artists’ Notebook, an online experience that brings artists together. Our goal is to help you explore different thoughts around creativity and retain a positive attitude through a sense of community. We’ll offer a series of creative projects, online learning and community.

The Artists’ Notebook project starts today with three live webinars from creative professionals, including Vanelli, Jeremy Chan and Abba Shapiro. It’s free to attend.
