This is a course that examines practical applications of presentation, documentation, business skills, and career planning specific to being a working artist. It provides a foundation of practical information to assist art and media students in building a successful career. The course consists of lectures, discussions, readings, presentations, and demonstrations. We will cover artist resumes, artist statements, grants, artist residencies, and graduate school applications. We will discuss taxes for artists, working with galleries and museums, websites, and promoting and documenting your artwork. The class will spend a significant amount of time discussing types of art venues and the appropriate contexts for different types of work. We will also cover how notable artists have worked in isolation and resources available for the survival of arts through a pandemic.
Our work will be conducted remotely using both Canvas and Zoom. Students can expect our remote teaching to be around 2-4 hours of remote meeting per week and 4-6 hours of asynchronous coursework/independent work time per week, using Canvas and Zoom. I will offer alternative assignments and ways of participating if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
