Free books about oil paintings in the UK[edit]

Hi, Wikimedia UK has been talking to the Public Catalogue Foundation here in the UK. They have offered us a dozen of their books on Oil Paintings in public ownership in the UK to give to FA writers who would find these useful reference material. If you would like one of these books, details of the 85 titles available are here. You do not need to be a member of Wikimedia UK or even resident in the UK to get one of these books, just choose a book and email me. Preference will be given to FA writers.

Drawing of Kim Jong-un[edit]

Does anyone here draw well? Please see this. Many thanks. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 00:28, 22 October 2014 (UTC)


Maybe this has been raised recently, but the Category:Arts seems to contain largely visual arts categories, rather than adopt the broad definition outlined in the Arts article.
Shouldn't the category also contain the top categories for other areas of the arts, such as Category:Music, Category:Literature, Category:Theater etc.?
In the meantime I've moved some obvious 'Visual arts' categories, such as Category:Art by nationality‎ to Category:Visual arts. Sionk (talk) 23:17, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Ah, I see Category:Music and Category:Theater are a subcategory of Category:Performing arts, which is part of the current category tree. Category:Literature may still need including. Sionk (talk) 00:07, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Does wikipedia consider press photographers as artists?[edit]

A press photographer that shot some pictures of a lifeless boy on a beach is being passed of as an artist, rather than a creative professional in a deletion discussion. If press photographers are equated with artists on wikipedia, then what about con artists? Burst of unj (talk) 00:44, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Re-organization of WikiProject Women[edit]

There currently is a discussion about the future organization of Wikipedia:WikiProject Women and several other women-related Wikiprojects and taskforces at the above link. Some aspects may be of interests to editors of this project and your participation in the discussion would be appreciated. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 12:18, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
