We have consistently seen that artists are lacking certain skill sets, tools and resources that would empower and strengthen their ability to create work, develop personal stability and envision longevity in a realistic way. How can we approach these issues in a holistic way that addresses the person and well as the artist? This course covers a range of topics that addresses the ability to create a quality of life, share access to resources, and redefine concepts of success. This class is open to artists in all artistic disciplines.
Covered topics include:
Housing | Homeownership
Artist Statements | Mission
Fundraising | Grant writing | Residencies
Principles for building a sustainable life
Developing and sharing strategies and models
Co-requisite: Dance or Drama lab assignment if students sign up for 4 or more credits in dance.
