ArtD’Hope Art Community is a social space for artists to create their profile and publish artworks. It’s free for everyone to join and you can create your account and start publishing your works. Even a non artist can also collect favorite artworks like and comment on the artworks published in the community. Art Community membership is the basic thing required for participating in other activities of ArtDHope Foundation. You need the Art Community membership to join Art Discussion groups in Whatsapp, Join events hosted by ArtDHope, Participate in Art Exhibitions, Art sale & art print sale sections of the ArtDHope Foundation etc.
One of the main questions asked by artists is “how can I start selling my artworks”.
To provide better experience for our Art Collectors & Art Buyers we have to limit the access to our sales section. For that we manually screen artists & artworks before providing access to the art sale section. Our volunteers will select artworks posted in the community and contact the artist and collect more information before providing access to the art sale section. So creating a beautiful portfolio in our Art Community section is the first step to access the art sale section and other activities of ArtD’Hope Foundation.

3, Add Your Profile Image
After verifying your email address it will lead you to a page called “Add a photo” where you can add your profile photo. Please add your own photo to stick with the community guidelines. A portfolio without your photo will be incomplete so make sure to add one.
4, Few more details about your profile
Click the “Save and Continue” button to reach the next page where you need to fill in your FIRST NAME, LAST NAME & Your Country. Then again click the “Save and Continue” button to go to the next page.
5, Skip or Follow few profiles
The next page is “Follow our famous or recent users”. You can either skip this or click the follow and continue button. If you skip this step your account will not follow any users otherwise your account will follow those accounts shown in this page. When you complete this step your profile is created and ready.
Once you create your Art community profile, you will find the “Upload Artwork” button which is a floating button (center bottom) on your dashboard area or you will find an upload button on the top right side (menu) of the dashboard screen. Here you can either upload 10 images together to the community, but these 10 images will be taken as a single post (single artwork)only. So if you want to upload 10 different artworks, make sure you upload each image separately and thus create 10 different posts for each artwork.
Right now, you can upload any number of artworks you wish to because there are no limitations to adding your artwork.
But it’s your profile and it’s your artwork so you have to present your artworks in the best way you can. We prefer artworks which are perfectly cropped and without frames. Moreover, only the well presented artworks will be included in featured artworks space, so make sure you upload your artworks in the best way you can.
Please crop and upload your artwork without frames or other content or you can upload with framed and other beautiful presentation elements. It’s all up to you to present your portfolio beautifully to the volunteers and public. Volunteers choose artworks and portfolios which are presented well.
So now your account is ready, start uploading your artworks & start following other artists from explore sections.
During the signing up process if you face this error “Your email address already exists”, it means you already have an account in the community. Then you should either use the password reset option i.e the “forgot password” button to reset your account password or use a different email address to continue and create a new account.
What if i forget to upload my profile image?
If you couldn’t upload your profile image during the signing up process, you don’t have to worry. You can edit your profile, upload a new profile image or change your already used profile image by getting into the “Profile settings” menu which can be accessed by clicking on the profile image shown on the top right side of the screen.
You will see the profile settings page where you can change your profile image by clicking the “change profile avatar” button.
