Hello!

Well, I’ve caught my first cold of the season and it’s a whopper! Snuffed nose, sore throat, and my head feels like a balloon. Of course, this comes on a day when a special little person in my life is celebrating their birthday, so it looks like I’ll be drinking lots of tea to make it through the celebrations.

Despite feeling ill and having a party on hand (don’t worry, it’s only the family party today, so I’m not spreading germs), I’ve still managed to pop up a job list for you. I hope it has the opportunity you’re looking for!

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Sorry for the lack of lists last week, friends! After considering various options to solve our website problems, CAC has opted to move to our very own server (the move will be happening a.s.a.p.). It seems that with our incredible growth over the past while (including over 1000 members in the few short months since we’ve introduced that feature, as well as an ever-expanding readership, content, and resources), we needed to make the investment to keep CAC running as best as we can.

This change means that the big plans that were going to be launched on October 1st will instead gradually be announced over the next few weeks and months. Be sure to check back daily so you don’t miss any of the exciting new changes and amazing opportunities!

For now, here’s a MASSIVE job list with plenty of professional possibilities to begin your week with.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I have great respect for mentors and their value to those who they pass their knowledge and experience on to. I’m always looking for new mentors myself when it comes to my creative craft and business practices, and I love helping others establish similar relationships.

So today my question is…

If you could be mentored by anyone throughout history, who would it be?

I’d love to hear your answer below after you check out the great list of job opportunities on today’s list.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

Yesterday I asked: Should artists / musicians / actors / writers be role models?

Today I’m curious about what role you play and what responsibility you might have to those who admire you and your work.

Do you consider yourself a role model? Would you want to be?

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

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I’m regularly asked by CAC readers “how to get started” in one area of the arts or another, whether it be related to education, career, techniques, or other aspects of art.

One specific question I hear is how to start an art collection.

I’m asked if people should buy art because of the value of the piece or fame of the artist. I’m asked it people should start with small pieces, then move on to more daring examples. I’m asked for any advice on how to make smart purchases and good investments.

I’m curious how our community of artistic professionals (and art enthusiasts) began their own collections.

How did you start your own art collection?

How do you decide what you yourself buy and display?

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I asked two question over the last couple of days (here & here) and got a great response.

Check them out:

.

What is the role of art? Is it different than the role of the artist?

“The role of art is to exist. Challenge, question, support, beautify, testify, et cetera. Not even the artist can guarantee what it will be. Too many factors… Time, culture, politics, history; it’s all organic.” - Mat Calverley

“The role of art is to inspire, explore and illuminate the truth.” - Brittney Francis

“provoke fun, thought & interest. Without art, life would be dull.The role of the artist is to create & share with the world.” - Nav Sehambhi

“The role of art is to uplift people’s spirits. The role of the artist is to attain artistic perfection.” - LorraineHétuManifold

“‘protect the origins of language and culture’” - karhiio

.

What is the role of the artist?

“create a pathway to experience.” - dsharpdavis

“”The Role of the artist is to make their own stylized comment on the state of humanity”" - Natalia Knowlton

“the role of the artist is to suspend time, even if just for a moment.” - Jacqueline Woods

“the role of the artist is to evoke, invoke and provoke” - Bartlett Gallery

“the artist is there to express themselves through their art and allow others to relate” - Staverous Cardini

“…poke into the edges we haven’t gone into or dare not go into.” - Maggie Shirley

“The role of the artist is to fill in the blank.” - Peggy MacKinnon

“connect” - Appy Aparnski

(We had many, many more answers, so I couldn’t include them all in this post).

Do you agree/disagree with any of the above? Have thoughts of your own on the subject? Be sure to let us know in the comments below after you’ve taken a look at the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

In our staff meeting yesterday, we discussed how June always seems to be a particularly busy month and how that leads to the need to sometimes scale back for the remaining summer months.

Hello!

We’re going to be switching things up a bit this week with Ryan (our Business Manager) starting to help me with some of the job lists. As CAC continues to grow, my workload is increasing. Ryan, at the same time, is busy taking full-time courses. We’re hoping between the two of us we’ll be able to handle the lists each and every weekday.

This week, I’ll still be doing the lists until Thursday, then Ryan will handle Friday’s. After that, Ryan will take care of Monday and Friday’s job lists as well as Monday’s calls for submissions & auditions list. I’ll be handling Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

So be sure to give Ryan a “Hello!” on Friday’s list!

And, of course, I have a great list of jobs for you below to start off your week.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I tried to take some time off yesterday after weeks of pushing myself too hard and too far. Relaxing doesn’t always come easy for me and when I know there’s work to do, I can’t seem to chill out at all. What about you?

What are your tips for allowing yourself the proper downtime?

How do you get yourself to relax?

Have a wonderful day!
