When it comes to video game streaming, Twitch is name that comes to mind. However it seems that perhaps in the face of YouTube Gaming, it looks like the company has decided to expand its horizons by launching a new community called Twitch Creative. This section of Twitch will be aimed at those in the creative field.
So for example if you’d rather watch a live review of a musical instrument, or if you want to watch some do some calligraphy live, or do live drawings, then Twitch Creative will be the channel for you. Artists who want a platform to be seen can also hop on board Twitch Creative, and given how popular Twitch is at the moment, there is no doubt that some of that popularity will trickle down to the Creative community.
According to Bill Morrier who will be heading up Twitch Creative, “It’s a place to broadcast your creative process. Any act of creation that winds up in a tangible work can be included, like painting, sculpture, or a song. It’s a fantastic creative community. Some people incorporate the live feedback into their art. We think it’s going to be a big deal.”
To celebrate the launch of the Twitch Creative channel, the company will be broadcasting all 403 episodes of the TV series The Joy of Painting which was hosted by Bob Ross and aired on PBS back in the day. It will run from the 29th of October to the 6th of November.
