Festive Special - Payback-Time!
Dec 20, 2019 Season 1 Episode 10
Laura Boswell and Peter Keegan

Being a professional artist is a job, it brings in income (hopefully) and, if all goes well brings a degree of satisfaction.  It is inevitable that people will help you in your artistic journey: giving you opportunities, buying your work or attending classes that you are teaching. from time to time it's great to give back a little largesse.  Today Peter and Laura talk about ways that they repay kindness and loyalty, or contribute to causes that they believe in by using their artistic skills.  They talk too about the value of devoting time to the artistic community,  involving yourself in art organisations or taking responsibility for art events.  It may be seen as work for nothing, but there are nearly always rewards in the end.
