分享书目：《What is the first thing to learn in art school?》
Michael Nicholas is an artist/entrepreneur, and has been involved with music, visual art, and writing for over 30 years. In the late 1990s he relocated to Europe, where he remained for 11 years. During this time he lived in Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Prague, and Vienna. It was also during this time that he began formal studies in music composition, which led him to return to the US in 2009 to pursue his PhD at UC Berkeley.
While in northern California Michael started his first business—a music publishing company—to handle royalties for himself and a handful of his colleagues. Upon completion of his studies in May 2014 he relocated to New York City and expanded his business to include a record label, print publishing, and a production company, as well as one-on-one creative coaching.
In February 2015 he launched his first online course, Create Your Own Way, which helps artists and creatives identify and achieve their own idea of success.
《What is the first thing to learn in art school?》
Art can be anything.” The second thing? “Learn to draw.” With 101 Things to Learn in Art School, artist and teacher Kit White delivers and develops such lessons, striking an instructive balance between technical advice and sage concepts. These 101 maxims, meditations, and demonstrations offer both a toolkit of ideas for the art student and a set of guiding principles for the artist. Complementing each of the 101 succinct texts is an equally expressive drawing by the artist, often based on a historical or contemporary work of art, offering a visual correlative to the written thought. “Art can be anything” is illustrated by a drawing of Duchamp’s famous urinal; a description of chiaroscuro art is illuminated by an image “after Caravaggio”; a lesson on time and media is accompanied by a view of a Jenny Holzer projection; advice about surviving a critique gains resonance from Piero della Francesca’s arrow-pierced Saint Sebastian. 101 Things to Learn in Art School offers advice about the issues artists confront across all artistic media, but this is no simple handbook to making art. It is a guide to understanding art as a description of the world we live in, and it is a guide to using art as a medium for thought. And so this book belongs on the reading list of art students, art teachers, and artists, but it also belongs in the library of everyone who cares about art as a way of understanding life.
