Listen Up! Professional Development Podcasts for Artists

I stumbled upon some great podcasts the other day on the College Art Association website. So far I’ve listened to the segments on Art Marketing and Developing Your Artist Statement. The Art Marketing podcast was well-rounded, you get to listen to 5 different artists (Amber Hawk Swanson, Sean Fader, Dorothy (Dotty) Fitzgerald, Leslie Parke, and Jules Rosskam) talk about what marketing efforts have worked for them. Jackie Battenfield gives you tips for Developing Your Artist Statement in her podcast. Jackie has lots of experience helping other artists with their professional development, she’s written The Artist’s Guide: How to Make a Living Doing What You Love (it’s a go to book in my library!), and this podcast is a good taste of what you can expect if you read her book. Of course, I thought I would listen to the 17 minute podcast and have my artist statement sewn up (I know I was dreaming!) but now I have direction to further refine it.

I’m sure the remaining podcasts about beginning a job search, researching a job and grant writing are fabulous as well.

Enjoy! I’ve got to get back to my art marketing plan…
