Big SkyThis wonderfully though provoking and inspiring document was shared by Daniel Cascardo – Fine Arts Design Professional.


We the creators of the global art community stand together in establishing a constitution of universal guidelines for the development and application of higher standards for quality, originality, creativity and value as professional artists.

Our work as creators will be valued according to these established guidelines, not for the individual person, but for the common good of all artists regardless of age, gender, race, nationality, or medium.

One: We creators are as unique in our works as we are in our own persons. We will respect each other as unique individuals with a creative style of our own, and build up one another as professionals.

Two: We realize that our work has value and we will not give it away. We will establish a monetary value in all negotiations. If we barter the value must be agreed upon by both parties.

Three: We shall unite as creators to support one another, educate, strengthen, and advocate awareness as a group.

Four: We will look for solutions and solve problems using our creative resources and professional networks.

Five: We will speak up against companies, charities, institutions, and individuals who treat or have treated artists unfairly.

Six: We shall be a force in our political and business arenas, learning about government art agencies,successful arts marketing and funding (ie % for the arts, tax exempt for artists, etc),and who the leaders are in our profession.

Seven: We shall be artists first and foremost and carry our titles with pride, respect, honor and purpose.
