Recently I’ve been thinking about other opportunities I could create for myself that would allow me to broaden my teaching. Currently, my teaching is focused on my classes at RISD and through writing my “Ask the Art Professor” column for the Huffington Post. I enjoy both, but lately I have been feeling an itch to somehow expand beyond those two veins of teaching.
In graduate school, I once helped a friend with some sculpture techniques, and she joked “you should have your own cooking show!” From what I’ve seen online, it seems like there is a huge audience that is starving for tutorials in art. In some ways, I’m thinking of taking my friend’s suggestion literally: a “cooking” show for artists. This is totally pie in the sky, but I figure that it doesn’t hurt to think about it, and we all have to start somewhere. I like that this is percolating in my head right now, and that something new is stirring in me.
ART PROF is a free, online educational platform for visual arts for people of all ages to learn visual arts in a vibrant art community. Imagine all of the resources here on our blog, except exponentially bigger, in greater quantity, and in more detail. Our Kickstarter campaign hit its $30k goal on July 19! Get info on our future launch by subscribing to our email list.
Ask the Art Prof Live is a weekly live video broadcast on my Facebook page where I provide professional advice for art students and professional artists. Ask the Art Prof began as a written column in 2013 and was featured in the Huffington Post from 2013-2015. Ask me your questions by commenting on the live video post as the video streams, and I’ll answer right away. I’ll discuss being an artist today, art technique & materials, work strategies for artists, career advice, teaching art, and more. Like my Facebook page and you’ll receive a notification when each live video begins.
Video Critique Program
I offer 30 minute video critiques on 8-20 artworks for aspiring/professional artists working on a body of artwork, and for students working on an art portfolio for college admission. Watch sample video critiques and get more info here.
