Time is fleeting, as they say, and it behooves us all to grasp it while it is still in reach. As an artist, one of your top imperatives is to make sure you keep yourself full stocked with opportunities that will enrich your practice and further your career. Seeking out these opportunities should be a regular part of every artist’s day to day life and it is critical to remember that more you apply, the more chances you have to get a yes.
