GETTING PRACTICAL: With a BA in ART, what are your options?
WORKSHOP with Giulia Piera Livi, Visiting Assistant Professor of Art, SMCM
This one-hour workshop will provide students with an overview of the opportunities available for BA college grads. We will highlight some possible career paths beyond practicing artists, as well as detail the research process for finding grants, artist residencies, and exhibition opportunities. The workshop will go over what it means to get an MFA: the pros and cons, the different types of programs, and how to decide what is best for you. Students will also learn the basics of what materials they will need for professional applications. The session aims to give students a better understanding of the wide range of careers in the Arts, and prepare them to build connections after graduation.
