15 Things an Artist Should Never Say

Valerie Atkisson | ArtBistro

#12 “I didn’t go to ‘X’ school, so I’ll never make it as an artist.”

Now that is just a cop out! If your work is good enough, it will find its way. A good art education is worth it but not everyone that went to Yale is making millions from their art.

#11 “Never be silent…”

…when you should be promoting your work. Simply open your mouth. Invite the curator you met at the last opening for a studio visit. This is the way the art world turns.

#10 Never say you will do it… when you won’t.

This is the most obvious suggestion, but also the one artists mess up on the most. Don’t agree to something that you cannot or are not willing to do for what ever reason.
