The purpose of The Grove Art Center is to bring Second Life artists together in a community of collaboration and learning. The Grove Art Center features an ever changing display of Second Life photos taken by artists of all types; professionals to beginners. We also host classes on various topics relating to the arts. including music. In addition, we have some of the best Second Life artists host discussions on their methods and styles. Stop by often and enjoy the amazing works of art currently being showcased.

We also have special contests! Watch here for those details.

Check out the schedule on our Events page for upcoming classes.

We encourage you to post your photos and share what inspired you. We’d also love to hear what you have learned from our many classes and discussions in our Flickr Group.
