About This Class

As an artist, creating work is only one part of the equation. Ultimately you want to get your work out into the world so it can be viewed, enjoyed and collected.

In this class, students will learn how to apply for their first juried art exhibition. To get them started, they will learn about different types of art shows and answer a series of questions to help them determine if a juried show is right for them and what participating in one entails. This class is designed for the artist just starting out but useful to all artists interested in applying for art exhibitions.

From there, the process of applying for art exhibitions will be covered in detail including: the common elements of applications, determining readiness for a juried exhibition, and how to find calls for artists in their area. The class will also touch on dealing with rejection and general guidelines for improving your odds at getting selected for an exhibition.
