Every month the Commission and Interest Group Division features a Commission or Interest Group. This gives the opportunity to get to know that Commission or Interest Group better. This month’s featured Commission is:
Advising Fine Arts Students Interest Group
Here’s a note from the chair about what’s been going on:
Pursuing a career in the fine arts can lead to a lifetime of fulfilling work. Yet, multiple challenges exist including making money, building a career, capitalizing on limited opportunities, dealing with commercialism, and making sense of the mechanics and metaphysics of this particular career path. Advising fine arts students can be especially challenging for those who do not interact with such students on a regular basis. This interest group is charged with providing information and support to other professionals working with fine arts students. Through on-line dialogue, and meetings at the national conventions, participants can share advising strategies, programs, and resources. Whether you advise fine arts students occasionally or daily, we are interested in learning more about your experiences and sharing ours.
