Historically, there are numerous examples of artists who have so totally focused their attention on their artistic pursuits that they have neglected their personal needs—some even failing to eat properly. That’s where the term “Starving Artists” originated.
Take Michelangelo for example. He was so preoccupied with his art that he was known to have slept with his boots on. That’s weird! And even though he was a very rich man, at times he liked to snack. (Click on "read more")
Let’s face it. We all like to nibble. Some of us treat ourselves to an occasional munch—even the would-be “Starving Artists” are not totally impervious to an indulgence now and then. So, think about bringing a snack to Critique and/or Program. It’s okay if you did not sign up. Yes. Just slip the cheese, crackers, and Oreos under your arm on the way out of the door. Or maybe grab the chips and salsa. Some artist will be glad you did.
As always, coffee is provided.
