Nathan realized he wanted to teach college-level art courses when he was still an undergraduate student. He paid his way through college through financial aid and summer jobs. “I shingled houses, worked nights in a factory, taught at a summer camp, was a field hand at a produce company, and worked on a Christmas tree farm.”

During and after graduate school, he also taught in part-time and temporary positions while looking for a permanent job. “There are many, many career paths in the arts. Don’t be afraid to follow your heart.”
