2020 Emerge Artist Incubator: Professional Development for Emerging Artists

The Emerge Artist Incubator curriculum, built in response to requests from regional artists, is a result of collaboration between Emerge Executive Director Jeni Hegsted, Emerge Program Coordinator, and Incubator Core Instructor Reinaldo Gil Zambrano. Its intent is not only to bring high quality professional development to the emerging artists of the region, but also to offer paid teaching and speaking opportunities to established artists and arts administrators. This program builds a sense of mutual support amongst artists and organizations within the community while fostering the growth and professionalism of contemporary artists entering the industry.

Emerge’s 2020 Artist Incubator features three types of course experiences:

Incubator Core

Open Critique and Portfolio Review

Panel Discussion and Workshop

Incubator Core – Series Description The Incubator Core classes introduce a variety of topics related to fostering creativity and professional engagement with the arts. The curriculum focuses on the creation of professional quality artworks, written documents, and portfolio rather than on sales strategies. These workshops highlight the importance of good creative habits and a disciplined approach to a career in the arts. Artists transitioning from art school or private home studio practice into the professional realm will benefit greatly, and mid-career artists may find this series helpful in revising foundational documents and portfolio elements. This workshop series celebrates individuality rather than a one- size-fits-all approach to professional development. While each workshop explores current art industry standards, discussions focus on adapting these guidelines to fit the individual artist.

Each class session features two hours of presentation and discussion related to the topic of the day. Printed course materials will accompany this part of each workshop. A private Facebook group is active for the entire four month workshop series, and is open only to Incubator Core students. This instructor-moderated forum provides space for further discussion about workshop topics and feedback on individual artists’ work. This approach allows for participants to engage in expanded discussions about workshop topics and to share their integration of new ideas and processes.

Classes run once per month, with online discussion group for support between meetings.

The Incubator Core classes will take place in Emerge’s newly renovated gallery space.

Students must have an active Facebook account to participate in the online discussion forum.

Enrollment is required for entire 4 month series, $75 due at time of registration, scholarships available

Registration due by Tuesday, January 28th.

This series is designed to serve artists who are 18 and older.

This class is limited to 12 students.
