This advanced level course is offered to upper-division students with previous experience in art and printmaking. Students should have previous knowledge and experience in studio arts with an emphasis on printmaking. The objective is to compile all previous work into a presentable digital portfolio. Students will learn tools for creating a resume that consists of art project experience and skills to apply for additional educational and outreach opportunities, graduate school, or employment. An introduction to Adobe photoshop will support the construction of a professional portfolio document. Students will be challenged to research opportunities as they learn about available resources for higher education, exhibition, and job opportunities. Students will learn how to photograph 2D work and focus on writing a cohesive artist statement and resume to better their success in promoting their artwork.
This course will be conducted as hybrid participation meaning that most time will be spent in-person on campus in the drawing studio, and some work time using Canvas, Zoom, and online model reference sites. A computer and access to the internet are required. If you do not have a computer one may be checked out to you from the campus library. All assignments must be submitted for review at the end of the session attended. Regularly scheduled synchronous (together) in-person meetings will take place once a week for a three-hour session. Students will be expected to take notes and work asynchronously (independent) for an average of 6-8 hours each week.
Printmaking experience is preferred yet this course may be applied to any artistic practice. Students should come to this course with an existing body of art work.
