Taught By: Rebecca Stenn

Section: A

CRN: 1943

Credits: 4

This course explores the challenging process of building and navigating a life in the arts from a practical standpoint. It focuses on the process of developing one's presentational style and organizational method, from writing resumes and grant applications to creating portfolios, and promoting one's work in the larger context of the performing/visual arts world of concerts, exhibitions, theater events, and other formats reflecting the skills and interests of students enrolled in the course. Students will work to define their professional goals and engage in individual and collaborative projects to implement these goals. Guest speakers (including publicists, presenters, agents, fundraisers, and technicians) will provide perspectives on creating a professional life in the arts, offering practical approaches to help students develop viable approaches for careers in the real world. This upper-level course is restricted to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. This course can satisfy an Arts program LINA (Interdisciplinary Arts) requirement, or a Contemporary Dance elective requirement.
