Art As A Career

The Art as a Career series of workshops seek to promote transparency and provide real-world solutions and skills that empower artists in exploring and entering the professional work space. Participants are encouraged to define their artistic agenda and identify with their own version of the art world. The workshop engages participants with the concepts, tools, and resources available in the physical and digital fine arts professions. They will learn about current systems within the contemporary fine arts, and ways to interact in their unique version of the art world.

The current series of workshops and lectures is customizable and is intended for instruction on site. The workshop covers topics such as, defining agendas, professional practices, portfolio building and gallery interactions.

Various Institutions: Coastline College, USCB, Marshall University

Work: Lecturing, Curriculum Development, Instruction

I was recently recognized for the Art as a Career workshop and am the recipient of a 2019 Joan C. Edwards Distinguished Professorship in the Arts from Marshall University in Huntington, WV.
