Cinnamon Latte Posted February 4, 2012 Share Posted February 4, 2012 Hi Everyone, I'm new to this forum and thought I would introduce myself. I have always wanted to get my MFA, but some people in the field I've been studying with don't think it is a really good idea for me. I do not work in the Painting/Art field but I do have a BFA from years ago and do sell some work and show regularly although no gallery rep right now. I am 47 (a young 47, but still). I do not have any dependants so I'm really free to move or not if I choose to do this and get accepted into a program. However, I don't want to spend an arm and a leg at this point in life, I'd like to feel good about retirement. I was thinking about Low Rez programs in Massachusetts or even Maine and Vermont. I think an MFA will help in focusing me on this finally as my life and obtaining gallery representation and just overall transitioning into Art as a full time serious part of my life. I am tired of trying to manage 2 jobs. I just want to make this transition once and for all. Its kind of now or never, don't you think? Has anyone else here made a successful transition later in life?? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
