This intensive, one-day, hands-on, seminar is geared to the practicing artist at any career stage. The focus will be on two dimensional work. You'll learn the basics of how to package and present your work professionally to curators, galleries, and clients – and be respectfully (even fondly) remembered. And you'll bring home sample packaging you will make yourself.
The impression that you make is based not solely on your work, but your
attention to detail, which includes how it is packaged and handled. After all the time, energy, and resources that we give to our work, we often overlook how we protect and package it. And, ironically, our artwork's packaging is often the FIRST thing art professionals see. Remember – The way you treat your art is the way your art (and your art career) will be treated by others.
At this seminar you will work in pairs to make a portfolio, a shadow box cover and card board corners and boxes that you can use as prototypes for future presentations, and for organizing and storing your work.
