Who Are My Six Honest Serving Men?

Where are my six honest serving men?
I keep six honest serving-men
They taught me all I knew;
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who

~ Rudyard Kipling

The artist needs to ask the six honest serving men:

What am I here to do?
Why do I want to be an artist?
When do I apply for grants?
How do I approach the arts?
Where do I go from here?
Who is my community?
