Advice to Young Artists in a Postmodern Era
Dunning draws on art, art criticism, his own insight, and various studies of those characteristics that lead to success in art by providing the student with useful information on pursuing art and art as a career. From exploring the development of self-discipline, examining the learning process, and suggesting courses to take in school to setting up a studio and networking in the art world, he recommends a general strategy that he has seen work well for many young artists. Although aimed primarily toward artists, and often drawing upon a comparison to scientists, this book is designed to explain how to achieve excellence in almost any field to which the reader applies effort, whether art, music, science, or business.
