According to SMU’s award-winning Arts Entrepreneurship professor, Jim Hart the traditional approach to arts education is “all arts technique and no real business skill.". This traditional approach contributes to the starving artist stereotype. Buck the stereotype and gain the missing piece of arts education puzzle — the “how to make a living" part.
