Artist Presentations ….

Wonderful! It’s time to start preparing your artist presentations. This is going to be really cool!

So, here’s a reminder and some helpful hints:

You will create a Powerpoint presentation and prepare a short artist talk about an artist of your choosing. You can pick from any of the artists on artaxis.org or on the critique paper handout. (that’s over 200 artists!) Pick an artist who is exciting to you – this is soooo much more fun if you are personally invested in the work.

Requirements for the Artist Presentation for S260 (Ceramics ONE)
– you must use Powerpoint
– should be approximately 7-10 minutes, but not longer than 15 minutes
– use as many images as you feel is necessary to carry your talk through 7-10 minutes
– you must provide a copy of the powerpoint presentation you created

Requirements for the Artist Presentation for S361 and S461
– you must use Powerpoint
– should be approximately 15 minutes
– use as many images as you feel is necessary to carry your talk through 15 minutes
– you must provide a copy of the powerpoint presentation you created

Some general tips on preparing your presentation:
– Powerpoint presentations that contain a large number of images generally look best with a black or dark background.
– PRACTICE! Practice the presentation first to make sure it fits easily within the allotted time
– Show up early on the day you present so you can put your powerpoint on the computer. Have a backup!
– RESEARCH! Read the artist statements, research what others have written about the artist, e-mail the artist and ask questions, look at their influences, etc.
– you might want to have some notes for the details and main points of your talk
