Carpe Art: Our Story
Carpe Art aims to dismantle the notion of "the struggling artist" and, in its place, build a title for undergraduates and graduates of known and appreciated creators. The site does this by streamlining the business realm of art that some artists may not be comfortable, knowledgable, or even interested in. Carpe Art reduces the artist's struggle by allowing them to focus on what they do best: create!
In addition to offering a marketplace for M.S.U. art, Carpe Art houses an ongoing conversation. Our mission is to educate artists on their journeys by helping them gain exposure and sell works. With the potential of making an online friend, users are free to discuss stories of successes and failures, receive answers to questions, and gain feedback on works-in-progress.

I am beyond honored to be a part of this incredible creative team! Carpe Art has given me valuable experiences that I will cherish for years to come. They have shown me how to pursue my career in a meaningful and fulfilling way, and I will always be grateful for that. Currently, I am studying animation/illustration, and my hobbies include boating, kayaking, and taking care of plants. I'm looking forward to what Carpe Art has in store next!
I am extremely grateful to be chosen as a Carpe Art Intern! Carpe Art has given me the opportunity to learn so much about about the artistic process all while learning about my own. I am a fashion studies major and plan on going into fashion merchandising. Some of my hobbies include dancing, singing, and acting! I can't wait to see what the future holds for Carpe Art!
