Get ready for the next big step from aftrART!

Exciting Things are on the Way!

This week is going to look a little different on aftrART.


I’m sorry to say I won’t be sharing a lengthy blog post or video.


In fact, I might not be sharing any videos for a while.


But I have something better!


Early next week, I’ll be publishing a free, downloadable resource that outlines the first 10 steps artists should take before seeking opportunities to share their work.


I remember when I first completed a series of images that I felt confident in. At the time, I knew that I wanted to share my work and apply to calls for art, but I didn’t feel “established” enough.


I wasn’t sure how to set up an online portfolio, I had no idea how to write an artist bio, and I didn’t have a whole lot of experience to make my CV stand out from the crowd. But  of course that didn’t stop me. I applied to exhibitions, scholarships, and awards, only to receive my fair share of rejections.


Towards the end of my undergraduate education, I had some great classes that helped me strengthen my skills. And after some direction and guidance in a classroom, I was able identify the many the mistakes I had made along the way. But there were a lot of things I wish I understood from the get-go.


So this guide is going to focus on everything I wish I had known when I was first starting out as an artist. It’ll be great for those just getting started in their creative practice, and are ready to take the next step!

P.S. If you’re wondering why I won’t be sharing videos, it’s because I’m currently camera-less. But thanks to Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art‘s Good N’ Plenty Award, I’ll be upgrading my setup soon!
