May Mini-Mester – NO PRE-REQUISITE
This three-credit course is geared to those interested in any or all part of developing, professional practices for artists, and selling your artwork. Students outside of Art and Design are highly encouraged to take this course. There will be options to work alone or develop one product in small artist group. Please encourage your friends to enroll. A few example art products might be ceramic decal design for mugs or tableware blanks, prototyped earrings or jewelry, screen print design for such objects as posters or t-shirts. The artist made and designed products will depend on the skills of the individuals in the course.
The School of Art and Design and 3DU @ Hunter Library team-up to bring high touch / high tech design and thinking through making to WCU in a whole new way. This two week and two day intensive course is designed as a stepping-stone into developing a small company or collaborative of one or many.
The course will cover such topics in workshop, discussion and lecture form with the professor, Heather Mae Erickson from the School of Art and Design, as well through Skype interviews with professional designers:
Short Lectures or Demos Might Touch Upon (class will decide due to collective interests):
The first store to carry your designs might be the Pop Up Shop at WCU Fine Art Museum. What a great line for your resume!
