Professional Development

Perhaps you’ve had some artistic success recently, and aren’t sure what to do next. Or, perhaps you haven’t had any successes recently, and have decided it’s time to do something about it. However you’ve reached the conclusion that it’s time to move your artistic practice to the next phase, we have a number of options for you. Workshops, individualized consultations, or both – there are plenty of options to help you get on your way.

Artist Career Counselors: Springboard has a team of Artist Career Counselors (ACCs), each of whom is a working artist, well-established in his or her field, with considerable experience in mentoring and teaching individual artists.

Artist’s Field Guide: The Artist’s Field Guide is an in-depth and customized application of our consultations and workshops that facilitates a deeper interaction between the artist and Springboard. $175 for 5 units.

Bring Springboard to You: If you are an arts organization, school or other group interested in bringing Springboard workshops, presenters or other services to your constituents, please click on the link, complete and submit the Bring Springboard to You form.

Consultations: Our Artist Career Counselors get to know you and your work, help you set goals for the coming year, and develop realistic strategies to help you reach those goals. $45/hr.

Workshops: Springboard offers a wide range of workshops in business and career planning, grantwriting, legal affairs and much more.

If you have questions or need assistance, please call Carl Atiya Swanson at 651-292-4381 or e-mail info@springboardforthearts.org.
