HCC To Preview
“Make.Art.Work.2015” Program
Sat., 11/22, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Events Center, Beacon Hall

BRIDGEPORT – Housatonic Community College, on November 22, will preview the Make.Art.Work. 2015 program.
At the event, artist-author Andrew Simonet will discuss the importance of developing the professional skills needed to keep your career as an artist moving forward. Simonet, a dancer, choreographer, and author, penned the book Making Your Life as an Artist, a guide to building a balanced, sustainable artistic life.

In Simonet’s words, “Nothing makes you a real artist except your devotion to making.” 

At the HCC event, Make.Art.Work. instructors Jeannie Thomma and Ryan Odinak will offer an overview of the program, while a panel of program graduates will offer their insight into the program and its benefits.

The program is a comprehensive career-training program for visual artists in Connecticut that’s being offered in Fairfield, Hartford and New Haven counties. The program helps artists develop needed business and entrepreneurial skills in a supportive peer environment.

From January to June 2015, artists will meet monthly in three-hour evening sessions, combining learning with coaching and peer support. The program will consist of a workshop series run concurrently in the three regions of the state. At the culmination, artists will curate and produce a group exhibition in their region.

The event will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Events Center in Beacon Hall. Registration is $20, which includes lunch.

Housatonic is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd. in downtown Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 (Exit 27) and Rte. 8, a block from the Harbor Yard Sports Complex. Free parking is available in the Housatonic garage.
