MGC's new Isolation Art Club - Instructions

You are invited to join other MGC members online in the MGC Isolation Art Club (IAC), a new complimentary member benefit! This is a private forum on our website where you can post images, start a discussion, comment on others' posts, and share thoughts on others' work. All media, techniques, and subjects are welcome. We know many of you are unable to make prints without access to the studio.

 

Staff will moderate the forum and post ideas and resources on a regular basis, but you are welcome to start your own topics. We will also host  weekly IAC Comes Together sessions via Zoom on Wednesdays at 3 pm - details with link posted on the forum. 

 

TO GET STARTED:

  1. Click the new "login" button at the upper right of our website. Create a new account for yourself using your preferred email address + a password. 

  2. If you are a new member, you must pay for the annual membership plan above to access the forum.

  3. If you are already a current member, MGC staff will add your membership to the website manually. This has to be done individually for each member, so please be patient. We anticipate it will take a day or less. 

  4. Once your membership is registered on the system (whether a new member or current member), you will receive an email from MGC that will confirm your membership + expiration date. 

  5. Next, login with your account info and access the "Isolation Art Club" page under "Membership." 

  6. In order to post, you will need to create a public profile. Go to the login button and choose "profile" from the drop down menu. This will bring you to your profile page. Click on the three vertical dots to the right of your profile info and choose "edit" from the menu to choose a profile pic and enter a bio. When you are happy with your profile, choose "make profile public."  

  7. When you are ready to post, click on the category you'd like to post in and you will then see the "create a post" button on the top right under your profile image. 

  8. Enjoy the IAC forum! You can access the forum on your computer or phone, as long as you are logged in to the website.

  9. BONUS: From now on you will also be able to access your purchase history and update contact information under the "login" button.
