Listen, we're not trying to make you into something or someone that you're not. We just know what it's like to be hanging out with a group of people that seem to know a lot more about art than we do, but we have figured out that everyone around us is just as clueless.

The difference between those who appear to know and those who don't is that the former group is good at pretending they know things. Sometimes we need to know how to fake it until we get what we want. This might be an internship or simply a friendship with that cool art student that sits on the other side of class. Either way, you might actually end up learning a bit more simply by pretending to already know it. 

We present you with the 15 Ways To Appear More Artistic Than You Really Are, a rookie's guide to participating in the art world without knowing that much about it.
