Professional Practices for Artists provides artists the opportunities to learn new skills, get advice on pressing career questions, hear insights from the profession’s leaders, and refine their professional correspondence. These classes are developed specifically for artists to provide career, community, and confidence building tools to support all aspects of a creative practice. Our instructors are not only experts in what they teach, most are practicing artists introducing concepts and practical skills grounded in real life examples. Topics will include writing resumes and artist statements; creating and maintaining an online presence; professional etiquette; and packing artwork.
