Canadian Arts Jobs – 08/14/12

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!

Yesterday I mentioned an old co-worker of mine who couldn’t understand why I would read a book multiple times. When I tried to explain, I compared it with re-watching favourite movies, which he couldn’t understand either. 

I asked what books you re-read, but today I’d love to know…

What movies do you watch over and over again?

It would be great to see your answers in the comments below. But first, be sure to check out the awesome list of job opportunities I have for you today.

Have a wonderful day!

Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Are you inspired to start another week? Does your working environment help with that?

I love to see where people work and where they create their art. I’m currently without an official office or studio and it’s driving me nuts! What about you?

Where do you create your art?

What does your studio / office look like?

We’d love if you’d show us a pic of your space in our Studios & Work Spaces album. And be sure to tell us a bit about it!

And, of course, we have a great list of jobs for you to start the week off with.

Have a wonderful day!
