This hands-on workshop will provide extensive practical information and tools on the business side of pursuing a career as a full or part-time artist. Emphasis will be on organizing and mapping a path to an active, lifelong, studio practice. A broad spectrum of subjects will be covered in-depth, (time allowed) including: writing articulately about your work for artist statements, grants, and proposals; portfolio curation and preparation; preparing an artist resume/cv; finding opportunities in galleries, non-profits, alternative spaces; residencies; time management, and ethical and professional practices for an artist citizen. Participants will be sent info prior to workshop and prepare materials beforehand for review so the day can be spent as productively as possible. Structure of the workshop will be designed specifically for the needs of registered participants. Bring laptops and/or notepads for a full day of pragmatic hands-on activity.
