Thanks to the artists, arts professionals, and cultural organizations who joined us for the 21st edition of #ArtistHotline on Twitter! The monthly Artist Professional Development Day is a great way to connect with the arts community and share advice for building a sustainable arts career. 

Here are a few of the topics we tweeted about throughout the day:

  • organizing finances in and around tax season;
  • touring an installation to galleries;
  • finding funding opportunities for a small arts business

“Teaching Artists:” Key Takeaways from the Guest Chat

During March’s Guest Chat, arts education consultant and educator Sobha Kavanakudiyil and poet and educator Aja Monet gave professional insights into a variety of topics, including: 

  • creating opportunities for students to expand their networks and to share their work;
  • encouraging students to reflect and revise;
  • creating age-appropriate, engaging, and meaningful lessons; 
  • getting input from students on goals and rubrics;
  • building revision into your lesson planning practice;
  • incorporating student leadership and learning from students

Check out the full Wakelet recap to read the whole conversation, and be sure to join us for our next #ArtistHotline Twitter chat on April 19, 2017, 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM EST. As part of the day, we’ll host a “Literary Submissions & Publishing” Guest Chat from 1:00 – 3:00 PM EST.

Our goal is to help artists discover the resources needed, online and off, to develop sustainable careers.
