Developing a Portfolio

Now that you have cre­at­ed works that you are proud of, pre­pare a port­fo­lio and com­mu­ni­ca­tion strat­e­gy that show­cas­es your expe­ri­ence, indi­vid­ual style, and pro­fes­sion­al accom­plish­ments. The effec­tive pre­sen­ta­tion of your work is inte­gral for your suc­cess as an artist. This course will explore dif­fer­ent ways to demon­strate your work, whether gal­leries, poten­tial clients or aca­d­e­m­ic insti­tu­tions. Top­ics include cre­at­ing an artist state­ment, effec­tive port­fo­lio prepa­ra­tions, apply­ing for grants and cre­at­ing pro­pos­als. We’ll explore the inno­v­a­tive ways con­tem­po­rary pro­fes­sion­al artists get their work seen, notice and talked about. This course is for any­one want­i­ng to con­tin­ue in either pro­fes­sion­al prac­tice or fur­ther edu­ca­tion in the arts.
