The professional Artist Practicum can take you down your desired creative path and help cultivate your growth as an artist. In this 8-week practicum you will learn about:

  • Creating consistent, quality artwork
  • Proper presentation of your artwork
  • Photographing your artwork properly
  • Social media options and approaches
  • Creating a web presence
  • Writing biographies, artist statements, and press releases that get read
  • Building your brand
  • Building a portfolio
  • Finding art competitions to enter
  • Methods of approaching galleries

The practicum is set up as weekly sessions. In the first half of each session a new topic will be discussed. The last half will be a facilitated group review/critique of the activities from the prior week. Each lesson will have out-of-class work to be presented the following week. Dan will review your submitted activities during the week. He will also have an email address available for you to contact him outside of class. Depending on interest, Dan may also set up a Google hangout for course mates to interact, share artwork, and share ideas.

Online registration closes three days before class begins.
Class is held at RAM's Wustum Museum, 2519 Northwestern Avenue, Racine.
