Advice for Art Majors

Yes. I have plenty of wisdom about being a college art student. Here is some: Take as many non-art courses as you can. Resist depression--it's a little-known fact that art students tend to be more miserable, and work harder, than anyone but pre-meds. This may be because progress in art is hard to's you can't know if you're learning anything, or anything good, or whether you have any talent. Remember that your teachers, for the most part, are art students who never left. Try to listen to everybody, but don't completely believe anybody. Draw constantly. Cultivate a cheerful attitude. Experiment. Change your Major.
