 To Be An Artist: Musicians, Visual Artists, Writers, and Dancers Speak is a conversation with today’s successful and prominent artists from a variety of disciplines— musicians, visual artists, digital artists, poets, writers, activists, and scholars. All of them discuss what it means to be an artist today, how they perceive their craft and their world, and the role of art in society. They agree that artists’ creativity and success come not only from the intense focus  on their craft, but, also, from their development of a worldview—from their wider vision and understanding of the world in which they live.              

 In To Be an Artist, author Camille Colatosti, head of the Liberal Arts program at Berklee College of Music—a premier college of contemporary music and, with 4,000 undergraduate students, one of the largest arts colleges in the United States—shares her first hand experience with educating young artists. In her more than 25 years of teaching at the college level and designing liberal arts programs for students planning specialized careers, she has seen how broad and general study helps young people develop and grow stronger in their chosen fields. At Berklee, she has watched aspiring artists, initially so focused on the study of the technical aspects of their craft, grow in their understanding of themselves and their world as they study philosophy, history, literature, mathematics, foreign languages, and psychology. And, she has seen that aspiring artists, as a result of this growth, become more creative, more willing and able to use rules and technical aspects of art as a place of beginning, rather than a place of ending. She has seen aspiring artists gain the confidence they need to create something new.
