Professional Development

Professional Development courses offer students an opportunity to delve into both practical and exploratory ground in their artistic endeavors. Concentrating on the serious and pragmatic path to becoming a professional practicing artist, areas are addressed that may not arise in other classes. These courses provide career-building opportunities, such as guiding students in producing their first portfolio, as well as a marketed group exhibition to assist more seasoned artists in successfully navigating the contemporary art world.
