How do you develop and resolve an idea into a finished piece? This is the question we asked of the artists who submitted entries to our contest From Idea to Finished Form. Part of the inspiration for this contest came from discussing how learning, creativity, discovery, and idea development happen in ways other than through traditional educational models. Getting feedback is critical to all artists growth, and it can be hard to come by. In traditional classrooms, there are structures in place and relationships with peers and faculty that facilitate this. For artists interested in learning outside of traditional academia there are an increasing number of options, and we discuss some of those in this issue.–Jessica Knapp, editor.
