Student Seminar: "A Life in Art: The Realities and the Economy"

With Susan kae Grant and Mary Virginia Swanson, Moderated by Dennis Keeley

Thursday, March 10 - 9:00AM to 12:00PM
Augusta Room

Back by popular demand and moderated by Dennis Keeley, the purpose of this year's student volunteer/scholarship seminar is to graciously and enthusiastically introduce participants to the SPE community while providing insight into careers in photography which emphasize education, networking, career choices, opportunities for artists, activism, and professional practices. This intensive workshop focuses on strategies for preparing yourself for life as an artist in today's economy. Discussions will address structures for making work, creating networks and getting your work into the public arena, print sales, licensing existing work, and securing commissions to create new work for clients.
