About Art Advocacy

During a time when art is being under funded and under exposed, there is an urgent need for more artists to take their art out of the basement, off of the family room wall and share it with the world. If you agree, do it now. There is no time to waste. The world relies on art in every way. Nothing can exist without the creative process.

It is a well-known fact that many artists are struggling to find their niche in the market place. That is simply the reality of the situation. Proper preparation, training, determination and support can help you step out of the shadows of obscurity and gain recognition for your creative gifts and artistic talent.

If you are an artist who believes that variety is a good thing, then you are invited to join the movement to restore art to its rightful place in the schools, in the churches, in the market place and in the hearts and minds of society.

All you need to do is sign-up to show-up. Make a commitment to share your work.

Here are a few ways that might help get you started:

  • Gather you work together
  • Become a fan of your own work
  • Read information on art
  • Become knowledgeable about other artists
  • Accept compliments and critiques about your artwork
  • Participate in local exhibits (Joint exhibits are a great way of networking)
  • Utilize technology (It is not a sin to use a computer to design, research and promote)
  • Be an advocate for art and spread the word about its relevance
  • Support and encourage other artists
  • Acknowledge and enhance your creative gift
