A Wonderful Resource for High School and College Students Nov 16, 2007
This book is perfect for high school or college students who want to channel their artistic skills into a career but don't know the number of opportunities out there to make a living in the arts.
The golden nuggets of Loveland's book are the short interviews of 95 individuals who are currently working in a wide range of creative jobs. These professional artists give us advice on how to break into their respective fields and offer us an inside glimpse of what they do.
Like an informational interview that we conduct in person, we learn what a toy designer does, we find out the daily routine of a museum curator, and we discover the education needed to become a dance therapist.
High school or college students who want to pursue an artistic career are often discouraged by people telling them they won't be able to support themselves in the arts. Loveland's book proves them wrong! Indeed, this guide will inspire creative people to follow their passions.
