1.1 Visual Artists as Entrepreneurs
We start the term by working out what you want to work on through the year. This may start by reflecting on what you may have done previously or from scratch. There will be a focus on planning and finding and sourcing mediums and materials you will need. There will also be a strong practical focus on an outcome per week throughout the course.
We will also we building a community of artists to support your practice together so there may be visits, speakers and discussion.
You may wish to contact the GATEWAY learning adviser and look into connecting with professional artists by yourself.
You will have the opportunity to exhibit your work in a public space and to build and online identity for your artwork.
Good time management, a commitment to honouring weekly goals and regularly attending group critiques is an expectation of this course.
