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 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!
The day’s schedule 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?
Cost: $10. Lunch will be provided • Preregistration is required • Professional development certificate available.
