Join Studio director, Amy Schwartz, for a three-week online course dedicated to advancing your glassmaking career. Planning and communication can open doors to new audiences and present opportunities for artistic growth. With contributions from experts, students will learn through online presentations and conversations. Topics for discussion will include retail and wholesale strategies, marketing and public relations, graduate school admissions, applying for residencies, and developing relationships with museums and galleries.

Students in the class will also have the opportunity for a one-on-one critique of their work with Susie Silbert, curator of contemporary glass, outside of class time. Other guest instructors will include Katya Heller and Richard Whiteley.

The class will be delivered via weekly video conferences that incorporate presentations, live demonstrations, and class discussions. Classes take place from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST. Students registered for this course should have a reliable internet connection during class hours and a computer or tablet that can support video and audio communication.
