How to Get Hired in the Arts (November 2017)

November 15, 2017
5:00-9:00 PM

In over thirty years of teaching, I’ve seen students run into many obstacles as they pursue artistic careers. But even in tough markets, a few continue to train and improve and prepare and produce. The greatest battle often happens within an artist’s personality.

In this seminar you will learn how people get hired in the arts. I will point to the realities of the market, comparing how art opportunities have changed in recent years, and will showcase stories of successful artists to teach the three big factors in pursuing a professional art career.


This seminar focuses on visual arts such as painting, illustration and graphic design, but it is valuable for writers, musicians, and anyone who relies on their creativity for a living.

Bring note-taking materials and a ready mind.
