Course Description

Have you completed or almost completed one of our certificate programs? In this seminar-style class tailored to individual needs, students establish goals and work toward putting together a cohesive body of portfolio work for potential employers and clients or for any other purpose. During the semester, a choice of homework assignments?including some publishable ones?gives students the opportunity to create additional portfolio pieces, with feedback in weekly critiques. The course also covers researching appropriate venues for your work, standard business practices and pricing, and how to design a resume, promote your work and approach publishers, studios, and organizations. Throughout the semester, we will hear from guest art directors and other professionals in the field. Recent students have gone on to successful freelance careers, publish books and cards, receive design awards and more. Ideal for those preparing to launch their career, designs or other projects. Level: intermediate-advanced.
