Getting your foot in the door of the art world.

While volunteering seems like a hassle some days it comes with great rewards especially in the art world. Volunteering in a gallery gets you in the door of what can be a close -knit group of local artists, that is difficult for outsiders to break through.

Being taught in university by practising artists who are part of this group, is also another foot in the door. Though in my first year I didn’t appreciate it as it seemed like a big door to knock down, but going into my third year I have learned that involving these tutors in what you are doing or wanting to do outside university benefits yourself as a artist incredibly.
