One big question artists have is "how do we keep artistry in design?" First, we need to change how society approaches the value of art.
Understanding art starts in schools. Art classes should be valued as highly as math or science classes.
Second, artists need to develop original ideas, which are the wellspring of design. Libraries are full of ideas, and the environment can help an artist enter a frame of mind that develops innovative ideas.
Protection of libraries and art classes create the necessary foundation for artistry. Good ideas create good design.
