Overview

Primarily designed to help visual art students make the transition from art school to their own practice, THE PRACTICAL HANDBOOK FOR THE EMERGING ARTIST is also an excellent resource for practicing artists. This ENHANCED SECOND EDITION continues to focus on all aspects of the emerging artist's career-studio practice, including developing ties in the art world, documenting work, making digital images, exhibiting art, writing about art, taking on curatorial responsibilities, addressing financial and legal concerns, and attending graduate school, with added emphasis on art in the digital age. The text demonstrates how students can make things happen for their careers, in addition to helping them find and approach already-existing outlets for their work.
