I'm part of an art group, and i have to say, it's really helpful.
We're all really loosely associated - we're all just friends, really - but every couple months we get together and draw. It's really nice when we have to travel some place, though. Like, we can share hotels or whatever as a group.
It's nice because it's not official - lots of autonomy because it's about being friends, not so much just making art.
