The Artist Interviews

There’s a lot of talk about arts education out there: what’s important, why we need it, and how to do it best. I decided to go to the source and ask working artists what it took to get them where they are today. Each interview looks at family background, influence, creativity, school, independence, and fueling creative thought. I think each is an incredible goldmine of information both about the artist him/herself and about what we can all do to cultivate young artists. We’ll be continually adding to this collection of interviews with thriving professional artists.
