There’s nothing quite like the feeling of winning. Whether big or small, a win is a win no matter how you look at it. In the world of art, there are so many ways to win. Art gets a bad reputation for being a dead end road with no real benefit after all of your hard work. In reality, it just takes knowing where and how to focus your energy to find your next win.

Praxis students are winning and we couldn’t be happier. We love to brag about how great our community is. Read a few of the most recent wins for yourself in their own words:

Did a group show last Friday at a local gallery. Thanks for the encouragement” -Christine

“This is the confirmation of my first sponsor donation. Woo! This was done verbally so no ask letter was sent. It’s from a person close to me.” Patricia

I am thrilled to be included as one of 14 new exhibition lobbies at the OAKMAN building in Jersey City. NEW EXHIBITS: 14 SOLO-ARTIST on 14 floors (I’m on the 7th floor). Join me for the Opening Reception and take the tour with curators James Pustorino and Anne Trauben of the Drawing Rooms. Friday, September 7, 6-8 p.m., 160 1st Street, Jersey City (near Grove street PATH station).” -Yael

Friends, don’t believe the line that no one can make it in the art world. You absolutely can and will if you are willing to put in the right sort of work. Choosing a career in art is about far more than honing your craft. While your practice is of vital importance, there are so many other pieces to this puzzle.

At Praxis Center, we lend our support when it comes to those other pieces. Whether you need a nudge to send out a few ask letters to potential patrons and sponsors, the confidence to reach out to galleries or help managing your time and including grant and residency applications in your regular calendar, we are there for you. For just $40/month you receive so much that they just don’t teach you in art school. You learn how to become a professional. Jump start your career today with Praxis.
