Carissa Burkett | Securing Exhibition Opportunities

So, you’re a visual artist and you want to show your work...what do you do next?  This class will help emerging visual artists (defined broadly as artists with minimal exhibiting experience) to go through the steps necessary in securing exhibition opportunities for their work.  

During this workshop, each student will develop an artist statement, and artist bio and CV and put together a practice Exhibition Proposal or an Artwork Submission Packet.  If students already have these documents created, it will be an opportunity to refine them and receive feedback.  There will be homework required for this course and students are encouraged to bring laptops or tablets/ipads to work on during class.
