A Professional Development Day for Teaching Artists, Arts Educators, and Prospective Arts Professionals
Friday March 6
Karl Drerup Art Gallery, Plymouth State University
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.
- “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.
