    Contractors build and improve on the structures that we work and live in. Most contractors are actually subcontractors who contract to do a certain portion of the project for a general (or prime) contractor. Although not every building team will include an A/V (or Low Voltage) contractor, the likely hood is becoming much more common. With electronics and computers becoming an integral part of our daily lives, you are bound to notice these appliances every where you go... including home. Imagine all the pieces that it takes to make this technology seamless. That is where the A/V contractor shines. 12v or Low Voltage Contractor may be licensed to install, service or repair:

    If you don't feel passionate about history or about math right now, that's not the trick. The trick is that you've got to learn how to pursue what you like by disciplining yourself to get through the things we don't [feel passionate about]. Augusto Herrera

    My first art teacher told me on the first day of class... A laborer is someone who works with their hands. A craftsman is someone who works with their hands and their head. An artist is someone who works with their hands, their head, and their heart. Augusto Herrera

    Helpful Football Analogy - Everyone has a different job. The quarterback can't be great unless he has someone to catch the ball, and the receiver can't be great unless he's got a quarterback to give it to him. But in every play, one of the two sides will always succeed and [one will] fail, and that's the trick again is how not to quit. And sometimes things happen, and your quarterback gets sacked... you loose 15 yards, but that doesn't mean you are going to loose the game. Augusto Herrera

    Nancy Christy-Moore, Fine Artist/Painter: Education and Training



    Fine Artist, Painter

    Fine artists, including painters, sculptors, and illustrators, create original works of art typically for their aesthetic value, rather than for a functional one. Artists create objects that are beautiful, thought-provoking, and sometimes shocking. They often strive to communicate ideas or feelings through their art.

    Fine artists typically display their work in museums, commercial or non-profit art galleries, corporate collections, on the Internet, and in private homes. Some of their artwork may be commissioned (requested by a client), but most is sold by the artist or through private art galleries or dealers. The gallery and the artist decide in advance how much of the sale proceeds each will keep. Frequently the split is 50/50.

    Most of a fine artists time is spent marketing and selling their artwork to potential customers and building a reputation. However, only the most successful artists are able to support themselves solely through the sale of their works. Many artists have at least one other job to support their careers.

    Some artists work in museums or art galleries as art directors or as archivists, curators, or museum workers, planning and setting up exhibits. Others teach craft or art classes or conduct workshops in schools or in their own studios.

    Often a fine artists specializes in one but sometimes more types of art.
    Fine art painters paint landscapes, portraits, and other subjects in a variety of styles, ranging from realistic to abstract. They may use one or more media, such as watercolors, oil paints, or acrylics.
