The Art Studio

The art studio is the artist's sanctuary; it is where she creates art.

The Exhibition

The exhibition is where the artist displays her art to the public.

The Classroom

The classroom is the residence of the teaching artist.

The University

The university often draws in and traps many artists who cannot otherwise support themselves.

Materials

Art materials are crucial for creating art but they must be handled with care.

Talent is something of a phantom idea for artists. The authors discourage speculating on whether one has it or not.
