The World Outside Your Studio

Les Cohn, Art Source South Africa Director, Career Coach and Project Management Consultant was recently asked by The South African Art Times what advice she would give to young artists and graduates entering the art market. This is what she had to say:

"In my experience many artists manage their careers in an ‘ad hoc’ manner. Then several years later they find they have not progressed nor achieved their objectives. What I advise artists to do is to define their aims and draft a strategic plan for their career, exactly as a business would. A plan which outlines their short, medium and long term goals and how they plan to achieve them in a sustainable and realistic manner. With a plan an artist is able to evaluate opportunities as they may arise and it provides them with a focus to their careers. Lastly, the most important advice I can offer, is to be professional in all their dealings so that they may earn respect!".
