Join The Studio’s director, Amy Schwartz, for a four-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 PR, 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 J. Silbert, curator of contemporary glass, outside of class time. 

The class will be delivered via weekly video conferences that incorporate live presentations and class discussions. Classes take place Mondays, 7–8:30 pm EST, beginning June 7, 2021.
