Don’t fake it…You Won’t Make it- Giving credit to artists and preventing art theft

Say you are scrolling your timeline on Instagram and you spot a painting that somebody you follow painted. You really like the image. So much that you decide that you want to repost the image to your page to show all of your followers. You do just that but fail to @ the artist in your post. Why is that an issue??

That is an issue because you failed to give credit to the artist! In this post, I will talk about giving proper credit to artists, avoiding art theft and plagiarism, and what to do to prevent it.

When we were finished, I suggested to my mom that we go visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts while we had some free time. So here are some of the highlights from our museum visit! I will be making some art based on the inspiration I got from the many many beautiful and historical pieces we saw.
