Professional Practice for Artists Intensive

with Lexa Walsh

In this 2-week workshop, we will move intently toward building our professional practices as artists. We will cover the many ways to be in the Art World(s), and how to get there: Goal Setting, Grants, Budgets, Pricing, Residencies, Open Calls, Artist and Project Statements, Elevator Pitches, CVs, Documentation, Websites, Networking and Promotion, and the importance of Community. We will share tips and strategies to help define and finesse each of these, by identifying our audiences, contexts, processes, research and challenges.

In addition to both peer to peer and instructor-led feedback, the workshop will also consider a variety of methods for getting your art in front of a variety of audiences.
