Here is a message to all the young visual artists out there! Make your work, photograph it, write about it, and apply for artist opportunities.
In this behind the scenes sneak peek of my interview with Scholastic @artandwriting I emphasize how important it is to apply. Apply for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, apply for scholarships, grants, college applications, artist residencies, and more.
If you’re a creative person in my inner circle, you’ve heard this message in the form of an encouraging text, email or call. If you’re a seasoned professional, share your resources with the next generation of up-and -coming artists. Share opportunities because you never know who will remember your work and pay it forward. That’s how all ships rise.
