DRAWING CENTER STUDIO

 

 


 

Ten monthly seminars, each held on a Sunday afternoon, focusing on
sustainable practices for an artistic career.

“If you want the world to pay for projects, you have to be able to display why you’re worthy.” – Amanda Palmer



Beyond the Studio
SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES FOR AN ARTISTIC CAREER


Studio work is just one part of the equation. To establish a career, today’s artists must also be entrepreneurs, public relations specialists, and web designers. They must have the ability to document their work, and write about it in a clear way. Yet these subjects often remain elusive, clouded behind an ‘everyone for themselves’ mentality, or ignored (intentionally or not) because art and business are two separate worlds. Often the life skills of art are just never taught. Beyond the Studio is a series of monthly seminars about the professional practices, tools, and information every artist needs to sustain a successful career over a lifetime. These seminars will provide many opportunities to ask questions of those in the field, and to discuss and share experiences with a group of peers. 

Fee for each Seminar: $20 (or $175 for all ten across the year)

Course Schedule: Sundays 2-4pm on the date listed

Minimum Enrollment: 5
