One of the most frequent requests we’ve received over the past several years is for our assistance with portfolio reviews and recommendations along with career development guidance.  Since artist career development is not part of current BECA programming, we’ve always recommended that emerging and early career artists and designers consult with their local and regional arts councils and arts commissions who sometimes offer the practical information being sought.  This recommendation hasn’t slowed down the number of incoming requests so we are establishing a short-term pilot program to address this need.

We’ve taken the most consistent requests and created the series, ‘ART400 – The RnR Sessions’. The first session in this series has been created for individual artists and designers.  The session is conducted by BECA Directors, Melissa Roberts and Kurt Schlough, and includes a review of existing art or design career goals and decision making processes along with a series of recommended actions steps toward establishing and achieving future goals. Each session will typically include a current portfolio review as well as a review of current goals and desired future goals along with any existing informational, marketing and outreach materials that the artist or designer currently utilizes. Future small group sessions are being developed but due to the individual focus of Session One, this first
session is conducted either remotely from the individual artist or designer’s location or in-person here in Albuquerque, NM in a one-to-one format.  The current registration fee is $25 per one hour in-person or remote session.  In-person Session times begin and end promptly to allow adequate accommodation of each registrant. (Information on remote Sessions is provided via email once Registration is completed.)
