Graduate school drew me for two reasons: 1. To do the things I was already doing, but better. 2. To do new things.
Though I was doing the thing called art-making, which required the thing called business-building, it took me many years to recognize all the biz skills I was (required to be) honing by nature of making art. One of the many skills I learned on the fly was flyers –both for paper and digital distribution. 2D image making was never a part of my dance education, yet as a choreographer I’ve been making flyers for years through analog overlaying of paper in copy machines and through digital work in Preview, Microsoft Word, and iPhoto.
To my delight, last week I laid aside the autodidact requirements of the last number of years and happily received an actual lesson in Photoshop via our Graduate Seminar course established exclusively for first-years. Here is my first lil’ postcard. May I only get better.
