Visual Literacy Project purposes
To pass along visual literacy knowledge.
How to interpret, and capture or create an idea as a visual artist can take a lifetime to learn and master. Our audience is hungry to hear your ways of seeing, techniques, craftsmanship, commercial approach or personal philosophies learned through practice; things that can’t be found in any MFA program.
For visual artists - add a narrative layer to your work and to your public personality.
Giving consumers of your art a better understanding of both how and why we create the art that we do connects people to us and to our art. After a creator explains their work process or intention, I find an appreciation for it that I might never have come to on my own.
If you’re thinking, “I don’t talk about my art. I let my art talk for me,” then maybe this isn’t for you. Consider everyone who helped to broaden your own skills and understanding that made it possible for you to be the creator you have become. If you ever plan to host a gallery show or teach your craft to others; talking about your art and your process is a critical skill just as much as mastering a brush or a camera.
For artists who are also educators
We offer opportunities for online presentations that elevate you as a subject matter expert in front of a curious and engaged audience that is actively practicing and improving their craft. We will promote you and your lessons inside of the private community that is part of Employee Art Program.
