Balancing/Act

BalancingAct-600bl

 

 

 

 

A Professional Development Day for Teaching Artists, Arts Educators, and Prospective Arts Professionals

Friday March 6

Karl Drerup Art Gallery, Plymouth State University

9:30am-2pm

Cost: $10.

Lunch will be provided

Preregistration is required

 

It’s a challenge….Maintaining that tricky balance of keeping an active personal arts making practice in conjunction with teaching and maybe traveling to multiple locations to share the arts experiences we value. And then there’s promoting the work, staying active in performing and exhibiting. And…making a living?

This “winter warm up” gathering day will give us time to discuss, share, and brainstorm strategies for achieving the kind of healthy and fulfilling balance we dream of. Whether you’re a teaching artist, an arts educator, a combination of both, or a student headed into the field, this day will enrich and inspire!

Join us for a day that combines workshops, a guided visit of the current gallery exhibit, and an interactive panel discussion led by experienced teaching artists.

Highlights include:

  • “Transcendence of Trees: Memorials and Maquettes”  Gallery Talk with Emile Birch
  • Virtual Versus In-Person Visit: A talk by PSU Professor of Art Education Jason Swift
  • Getting Gigs and Making Work! — an Interactive Teaching Artist Panel Discussion: Balancing art making and teaching work. How do we market ourselves? What strategies work? What has changed? What tools do we need?

 

Professional development certificate available.

Presented in partnership with the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire, the NH State Council on the Arts, the NH Arts Learning Network, the New England Consortium of

Artist- Educator Professionals, and the Plymouth State University Department of Art.

Emergency Back-Up Plans:
Backup Plan 1: 4:30pm Pick-Up
Flight delays or other travel situations may prevent you from making the 12:00pm airport pick-up.

If you miss the 12:00pm pick-up, you may wait for Sandy and Jess at 4:30pm. We will know who you are because there will be a check-in sheet for the the 12:00pm pick-up with Brianna and Ronja. If you missed the 12:00pm and you didn’t check-in, then Sandy and Jess will wait for you. If there is room in the van, you will ride with them.

The cost of a one way ticket is $30. Just board the bus and tell the driver you are going to Plymouth, New Hampshire. You will pay for the ticket when the bus arrives in South Station (the first stop after the airport). To get to the Concord Coach bus, exit the airport building toward ‘Ground Transportation’ and the bus will pick you up by the curb.  The bus says Concord Coach on the side.  Make sure that you ask the driver to make sure the bus is going to Plymouth, New Hampshire.  Bus transportation is recommended, as a taxi ride will be hundreds of dollars (Plymouth State is approximately a 2 hour drive from Boston).
