untitled seascape - Ashley

Yesterday I asked what you thought the role of an artist is. Today I’m wondering what you think the role of art is. Does art itself have a different intent/responsibility than the artist creating the work?

Fill in the blank:

“The role of art is to _____________.” Is it different than the role of the artist?

I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments below after you check out the great list of job opportunities I have for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Abstract Art - Heather Plewes

Yesterday was a looong day for me as the night before I went to bed at 1 a.m. then woke up at 5:40 a.m. Every day/night has pretty much been that way for the last few weeks as I try to balance everything I need to do while juggling a demanding (!) schedule.

Feeling the lack of sleep dragging at my body and fogging my mind, I asked over CAC, Twitter, and Facebook how our community keeps their (artistic) energy up.

Here are a few of their answers:

“Little naps during the day and night! And eating energy making foods and lots of water…” - Susan Weiss

“take stretch breaks, dance and….coffee helps too :)” - Dorothy Weiss

“Good music and awesome coffee – not crappy coffee, this is important! Good tasting coffee = good work” - Ben Purkiss

“I pace myself and I take short frequent and guilt free breaks to avoid burning out early.”@sanleigh

“i can only write out at coffee shops. The tea and company keeps me going.” – laurie petrou (@lauriepetrou)

“I eat lots of nuts and make sure I have something good/new to listen to:)” – D’Andrea Bowie (@d_andreab)

“Healthy snacks, and drinking lots of water. Being busy with dance makes me very happy and grateful, so that helps the most!” –  Nicole Rose Bond (@NicoleRoseBond)

“Going to the gym totally helps” - @NFBMediatheque

“Healthy food choices and hydration. Plus quality coffee…” – Kate U (@TOViolinKate)

“Gym and/or ride my horse. Mostly “or” (no time for both!).” - @wpgreview

“3 cups of tea before 10:00am” – Karina Bergmans, @KBergmans

The suggestions kept coming, with most including food, exercise, naps, music, and coffee. Lots of coffee. Good coffee. Confession: I don’t drink coffee. No wonder my mind is so foggy! lol!

How do YOU keep your energy up when you’re super busy? Leave a comment below!

Perhaps finding the perfect opportunity will fuel you up, so here’s a great list of jobs for you below.

Have a wonderful day!

Our new columns continue to launch and yesterday saw an interview with “Grim” Kim Kelly for Girls Don’t Like Metal from Natalie Zed (aka Natalie Zina Walschots).

“This column examines gender issues, feminism and sexuality within heavy metal music. Each post will come in the form of an interview with a member of the heavy metal community, including artists, writers, magazine and website editors, road crew members, merch folks, sound techs and fans. Interview subjects may identify as female/femme/trans/genderqueer or be allies, and share a deep love of, and commitment to, heavy metal.”
