One-on-One Career Development Consultations for Visual Artists

A consultation with Katharine T. Carter is an in-depth evaluation of an artist’s work, professional accomplishments and presentation materials, combined with solid advice and valuable recommendations designed to promote and enhance career development. During an initial evaluation prior to the consultation, Ms. Carter analyzes all submitted presentation materials and comes to the one-on-one session well-prepared to offer specific and appropriate advice that is tailored to the artist’s unique career objectives. Ms. Carter will first gauge how far an artist’s artwork and career has proceeded towards his or her goals, and then project what can reasonably be accomplished through new initiatives.

Some of the areas covered during the consultation include: promotional presentation materials, marketing strategies, and goal structuring. Ms. Carter outlines the opportunities that are suitable to the artist’s style and level of achievement. She also explores other statewide and regional opportunities for the artist’s work, such as museums, college and university art galleries, corporate collections, corporate and independent consultants, architects, landscape architects, designers, interior designers, and public art projects. Prior to the conclusion of the consultation, Ms. Carter will discuss the Company’s higher level services. All questions regarding fee structures for Company services will be addressed at this time. The consultation fee includes a copy of Accelerating on the Curves: The Artist’s Roadmap to Success, our comprehensive career guide and artist resource listing.

During the consultation, Ms. Carter provides extensive and valuable resource information tailored to the artist’s needs. A tape recorder, and active note-taking, is strongly recommened for the duration of the consultation; the session will be information intensive.
