Enemies Of Good Art

For most students the question of when to have children is rarely if ever discussed. Why is it that we can be professionally prepared for a career after education but we are never encouraged to discuss having a family and when might be the ideal time to do so? This discussion will look at how some artists navigate education and family life, and why it is so important to get children on the agenda at art school.
