We welcome current art school students, graduates, self-taught professional artists, and even avid art collectors who take an interest in emerging artists.
BFAs and MFAs in all art fields are especially encouraged, but not required. I remember being told in school that only 2% of recent art grads actually making a living as artists! As a former college art instructor and a current freelance artist, I thought why not reach out to other emerging artists. We cannot give up.
I created this team because there are so many art school students, graduates, and self-taught artists who are struggling to find their niche in the art world; I would love for those who already have succeeded in making a career in the arts to serve as positive role models for those who are just emerging. I also know that it's difficult to get noticed even if you're extremely talented, so I hope this group provides you with more exposure and tips on how to promote yourself. We can all benefit from furthering our education and what better way to learn than from each other! I want this to be a place where everyone is comfortable, so please LET ME KNOW what you hope to gain from this team and what you're struggling with so we can help you! Let this be our own "Art School" - the REAL world experience. We are your classroom critique, we are your peers and mentors, we are here to help you succeed!
