Emerging Visual Artist Intensive

The Emerging Visual Artist Intensive is an immersive online program of feedback, connection, and mentorship for artists in the early stages of their careers. Participants will continue their practice from home, while being part of an online community of emerging artists each committed to developing and expanding their practice. In addition, participants will receive a stipend to support the development of their work.

What Does the Program Offer?

This online program will provide a discursive forum for visual artists to explore ideas in relation to their work, communities, geographic locations, and current societal conversations. Participants will form an online community of peers; share previous work with each other and continue work already in progress; partake in online studio visits; participate in conversations, presentations, and workshops; and engage with faculty and each other to develop ideas, insights, and connections that can be applied to the theoretical and practical development of their practice. Please see the Itinerary section for an approximation of the program schedule.
