I don’t know about the art program(s) that you attended, but in the ones I went through we didn’t really talk about health and wellness in the studio. I get it, we’re in art school to study art, not physical therapy, but our studio practices influence the longevity of our careers, and I believe that encouraging education about these topics should be a priority.
I started Wellness for Makers way before I was ready and before I knew exactly what it was going to be. I did everything without getting a business degree and, just like many other business owners, I made plenty of mistakes along the way. I wasn’t confident in my prices and, as a result, I priced all of my services way too low in fear of losing a gig.
