So, no artist needs advice from me, but here it is anyways...

1. You don't have to be a drama 'geek' to try out for a school play. Write or draw something for the school magazine. Play in the Band or learn to play an instrument. Be involved in the Arts. Try out for a school performance.

2. Write/draw a comic strip. Submit to the local or school newspaper. Make your own copies of your comic strip and leave on cafeteria tables or tape on bathroom stalls. This is a great way to practice your artistic skills and make a statement at the same time.

During my college graduation, several art students passed out small comic strips about life after college; they were thoughtful strips causing students to laugh and think about the journey upon which they were fixing to embark.

3. Use your art to promote something else, like a band, a banquet, a protest etc.

4. Keep a notebook, website or blog on artists you have learned about or admire. Post pictures or things you find interesting about each artist.
