The only rule is work


Here are the official rules for Corita Kent’s art department at LA’s Immaculate Heart Convent, appropriated from a class project she taught there in 1967-1968.


I especially love the last paragraph and that final sentence in particular.

“Always be around. Come or go to everything. Always go to classes. Read anything you can get your hands on. Look at movies carefully, often. Save everything — it might come in handy later. There should be new rules next week.”

– Corita Kent
