This is a program for artists that are not seeking a degree but rather an opportunity to build and work on a professional portfolio. Post-bacccalaureate students are guided through the transition from a structured academic curriculum to an established working practice. The program is specially designed for those artists who wish to build their portfolio for admission to graduate school in visual arts and for working artists who are looking for a new perspective on their own work and would like creative feedback.

Topics in Contemporary Art
The critical theory aspect of the program is an essential component of the participant’s practice. Participants will be encouraged to consider theory as a way to becoming an inspired and autonomously creative thinker and practitioner. In addition, they will have the opportunity to study with art curators and other theorists in order to fully comprehend the role theory plays in the international field of art and culture.

These nationally and internationally recognized artists help contribute to each participant’s experience through individual critiques and creative guidance. In addition, each week a visiting artist is invited to SRISA for critiques and studio visits with program participants. Frequent exhibitions in the SRISA gallery provide an active on-site artistic community. Post-Baccalaureate Certificate participants are invited to meet with visiting artists and with the opportunity for collaboration.

PORTFOLIO SEMINAR

Participants will have the opportunity to attend seminars to help develop their current studio practice into a working portfolio that may be used for a variety of purposes, including preparing graduate school applications (MFA or MA), developing successful applications for artist’s residencies or learning how to seek funding for specific projects.

The aim of the seminar is thus to consolidate participants’ work into a portfolio that MFA program application reviewers or art professionals can navigate easily due to clarity of form and content. In addition, participants will learn how to translate the visual language of their art into a written language that coincides with their practice, which is a fundamental aspect for any artist wishing to present their art in today’s world.
