We seek the compulsive artist: one who must create to find completion. Our existence is consumed by art, surrounded by the smell of paint, the grit of clay and compelled by the urge to visualize ideas. The insatiably curious artist—in pursuit of a personal vision and seeking the skills, context, and guidance to realize that vision—will thrive here.
