Overview

Flight School Fellowship is an opportunity for artists in the Pittsburgh region to form a fellowship with artist peers and advance their artistic careers in a way that sustains and expands financial and strategic goals, while keeping their artwork as the central feature.

The curriculum for this professional development program includes:

strategic planning
marketing
budgets
fundraising
networking
taxes
time management
websites
artist statements
project management

15 selected artists begin the Fellowship with a weekend workshop immersion in the Creative Capital Professional Development Program. The nine weekly sessions to follow include peer workshop sessions, guest artist discussions, and art community leader discussions. The fellows gain new insights on how to advance their artistic careers by fully engaging in these discussions and workshops.

Fellows leave the program with an action plan for their future, a sense of confidence about their role as an artist, and a network of peer artists and other meaningful relationships to help achieve their goals.
