Going to Art College: Adults [3 of 3]

Sometimes life isn’t as perfect or as generous as it seems to be in the movies. Maybe you wanted to be a writer or photographer, or maybe you daydreamed about one of your paintings selling for more than your parents’ house. If this sounds like you, it’s okay… you’re not alone.

When people attend college for a career instead of a passion, it often lands that person in a job that is totally wrong for him or her. If this is the case, you’re probably wasting your talent. As Einstein put it “everyone is a genius but if you judge a fish by its ability to do math it will spend its life thinking it’s stupid.” That little voice in your head telling you that you are an artist? Listen to it.
