Art is a passion. And for those who decide to build that passion into a career, art can begin to feel like a daunting path. But it doesn’t need to be this way. The art world is not impenatrable. You absolutely can find opportunities in every corner, and while you won’t land every one, there will be those that are just right for you. Each week we bring you a handful of opportunities to inspire and put you on the path toward that next step in your career.

Praxis Center believes in artists. We have seen, time and time again, that with the right skills and resources, it is possible to take your art out of the studio and into the world. We know there is hard work along the way, but we also know that it can and does pay off. Give Praxis a try today and see how far we can take you.
