The Business of Art: A Spring Break Camp for Ages 10 and Up
Embark on a transformative 4-day Spring Break camp, "The Business of Art," designed for ages 10 and above. This immersive program is tailored to equip budding artists with essential skills crucial for a thriving artistic career.
Throughout the camp, participants will delve into pivotal topics:
1. Building a Professional Portfolio: Understand the art of crafting a compelling portfolio that showcases your best work effectively.
2. Peer Reviews and Constructive Criticism: Master the valuable skill of giving and receiving feedback to refine your artistic endeavors.
3. Presentation Skills and Artist Talks: Develop the confidence to present and discuss your art professionally, along with crafting engaging artist statements.
4. Applying to Juried Art Shows and Residencies: Gain insights into the application processes, learning strategies to increase your chances of success.
Participants will need to bring artwork to each class session. They'll engage in discussions and practice sessions, being ready to speak about their pieces in front of the class. This interaction will foster confidence in presenting and discussing their artistic work.
The pinnacle of this camp will be the Artist Talk, where each participant will deliver a brief presentation about their artwork. Parents and friends will be invited to this event, offering an opportunity for participants to showcase their newfound skills and artistic journey.
Please note, this camp will not involve creating new artwork; rather, it's dedicated to honing critical non-art aspects fundamental to a successful artist's career. Join us to dive into the business side of artistry and lay a strong foundation for your artistic journey.
