If there is anything you can learn from marketing and starting your own business it is to take advantage of learning opportunities. There are so many ways you can grow your business and enhance your personal knowledge through education. It is the greatest gift you can give yourself.
I recently stumbled along the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship which seeks to help college graduates ease into the work force. I don’t have to tell you how hard things are economically. Your best strategy is to improve your marketability. As artists, we do this through finding our niche. If you are in a technology field, you do this by improving your knowledge base through education.
Education is a gift whether it is in the arts or science. My personal belief is that if you have knowledge, you have a moral obligation to share it. That is why I have this blog. I want to help artists. Artists play a vital role in society. They deserve support. If I succeed as an artist, fine. If I learn something that other artists can benefit from, the more the better.
My background is science which is why my art includes landscapes. Nature is the god in my life. Art is my prayer.
I encourage artists to learn. Learn about your subject matter so you can add the nuances of one in the know. You can convey a deeper meaning which will make your art more powerful. Find a way to share the precious knowledge that you have.
