Whether you're an artist, student or college we need your help letting students know about it; tell students about the newsletter in college, encourage them to join the student mailing list or if you're in contact online, email or message them with this link:

Hi AA2A folk, here's some advice on correcting the ordering in your 'Skills' & 'Influences' etc
So, if your list appears backwards, here's what should work (although it may vary in different browsers).Go into 'Edit'.... don't alter anything (even though they are in the reverse order) 'Save' again and they are then shown correctly.
This quirk is because in social networking sites, fields are often designed to show the most recent update first - but, obviously when you want a fixed order, this causes conflict.
The alternative to this would be separating the items with a hyphen instead of a comma e.g 'art - ceramics - design'.
Unfortunately the only thing we haven’t worked out is what to do if you get stuck with an unwanted capital letter!
Hope this helps
If you want to put images in your blog rather than create an image album, here are a few tips.
Hi new AA2A artists, Its great to see that mugshots and profiles are already appearing in our first 24 hours of registration. If you need a little help with what to do next, have a look at our 8 minute video tutorial which we've made to take you through the basics of setting up your page, passwords, changing your settings etc http:/
We really hope you enjoy your AA2A scheme and are able to make the most of the opportunity and this networking website

Hi AA2A artists,
2011-12 Artists - you should have received emails from us about the 'AA2A Artists Evaluation' Please could you contact us if you have not received this: firstname.lastname@example.org
We've had a good response so far, so to all those artists who've completed it; thankyou very much! We really appreciate your feedback about the scheme and your experience, it genuinely makes a difference to how we run the scheme in future. If you have yet to complete your evaluation please can you do so as soon as possible.
Hi AA2A Artists,
Last chance to vote!
If you are still working or exhibiting in your AA2A college please could you encourage students to vote? Direct them to this site and every artists page has 'vote for this artist'. They can vote for any artist on the scheme this year; you don't have to ask them to vote for you - although you can if you want! Students who vote have the opportunity to sign up to our mailing list so it really helps us spread the word about the scheme.
The Public vote is also still open - don't forget you can vote for other artists too and you're welcome to tell people about that too/promote on your facebook page/your blog/twitter etc.
Have you voted for your favourite AA2A artist of 2011/12?
- Voting is easy: every artist's profile page on this site has a link to 'vote for this artist' or you can go directly to the voting page here: http:/
- Voting closes at the end of May
- You can vote for any of this year's artists from any college, whether it's because you like their work in college or online or just that they are good at involving students and communicating their knowledge and enthusiasm.
- The winning artists will be promoted on our Websites and Pages, and the Students’ choice will have their project featured in London at the AA2A College Briefing Day.
- The student vote is for students at participating AA2A colleges (there's also a 'Public Vote' for students from other colleges or members of the public - including artists and college staff).
If you've already voted, please encourage your friends!
We have produced our first attempt at a 'screencast' aimed at helping new Dotbiz users get started using the site.
