Emerge Artist Incubator Professional Development Series
April 24 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 5:00pm on day Last of the month, repeating until June 26, 2018
Emerge’s 2018 Professional Development Series will guide students through a variety of topics related to fostering creativity and professional engagement with the arts. This series of classes is designed to serve students of all experience levels, so whether you are a beginner or seasoned veteran in the arts, this class is for you! This workshop series celebrates individuality rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to professional development. While each workshop will explore art industry standards, our discussions will focus on adapting these guidelines to fit each individual artist.
Classes will be held from 6pm – 8pm on the last Tuesday of each month from February – June of 2018.
March 27, 2018 – Writing an Artist Statement and Biography
An artist statement and biography are essential components of any artist’s toolbox. The artist statement is a verbal introduction to the artwork, and similarly, the biography is an introduction to the artist’s professional identity. Since these documents are used frequently and in many different contexts, it is important to keep them current and looking their best. In this workshop we’ll discuss some guidelines for getting started on or refining both of these professional documents.
