Core Seminar 6: Entrepreneur

Spring 2020

Taught By: Shane Aslan Selzer

Section: A

CRN: 2032

Credits: 3

Core Seminar 6: Entrepreneurship & Creativity is focused on integrating students’ personal practice with their professional aspirations and expanding the horizon of areas to which they might consider applying fine arts thinking. Responding to the diversity of models for practice within the field, from the atelier to the small business or the non-profit, to working in the public realm, this course helps students to research and create a professional context for their interests. Class discussions and assignments include practical exercises such as writing a resume and artist statement, presenting work, time management, and setting career goals. Course readings focus on social and cultural entrepreneurship and critical thinking about ethics and creative economies. Students develop plans appropriate to their aspirations and are required to research the contemporary landscape of practices that relate to these aspirations. Guest speakers include visiting artists as well as advisors on practical topics: from finding freelance work to web-based marketing, from non-profit founders to strategic planners. Students are encouraged to explore applications of creative and critical thinking as it potentially intersects with other fields and possible trajectories. The Visiting Artist Lecture series is also a key component of this course. By the end of Core 6, students will be comfortable talking about their work, developing strategies to disseminate their work on multiple platforms, and producing written materials to support their creative practice.
