Every artist’s situation is different. Schools vary widely as to what you may have been exposed to or taught. Nonprofit organizations, too, range from the conservative to the conceptual and address a wide range of ages and issues. Some of these tools are for beginning artists, or for those who have little or no experience talking about their work. Other modules are more appropriate for mature/established artists.
Since not everyone is alone in this artist journey, it is highly recommended that you actively engage your artist peers to discuss those things with which you may not be familiar, like legal issues, accounting, or curating. Different perspectives and experiences can be very valuable to hear. Participating in a visiting lecture or other workshops for artists could be invaluable. Other voices are always a good idea, as artists like to hear from a variety of people. The most important thing to remember is to invest in yourself as an artist.
