SA 1370 Preparation and Practice in the Visual Arts

Preparation and Practice in the Visual Arts will address "real world" issues of functioning as an artist in contemporary society. Topics will include the state of the visual arts, the function of the artist in society, career options related to the visual arts, portfolio production, written and verbal articulation in support of work, and survival skills for maintaining a visual arts practice.

Guest speakers will give insight on how to approach galleries for exhibitions, the function of a curator, how to start a studio, as well as other relevant information. Preparation of a comprehensive portfolio will be a term-long project, exhibition submissions will be a required component of the course, and group assistance in producing an exhibition will give hands-on experience.
