"Google+ Project" Allows Artists & Writers to Connect by Video

google.com Connect with Kate on Google+

Are you an artist or writer working at home? You can use Google Plus Project Social Network to meet up with a group of artists and have a casual chat by video. When you use the "Hangout" function, you can visit with 10 people simultaneously (kind of like a teleconference). And it's all free!

Join Google Plus Project for a art community hangout and chat (Search for "Kate Harper" and add me to your "Circle" if you'd like to try this). Since this new service is in beta and by invitation, let me know if you are having problems joining.

Short Video Demonstrations

Imagine the Possibilities:

-Meet with a group of etsy fans or fellow artists.
-Have a professional Art Licensing support group.
-Ask designer friends for feedback.
-Take or give a class.
-Be available online for a question and answer session about your art.

How it Works

-The maximum members in any Hangout is 10.
-People can come and go. If one person leaves, another can take her place.

-Whoever is speaking is automatically switched the large image on the computer screen. If someone else talks, it then switches to them.
-It's free!

Sample Computer Screen of 4 People Chatting
In this example the person speaking is the woman.
When someone else begins speaks, the image is replaced with the new speaker.
