Along the way, program facilitators from Louisville Visual Art and The Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University work with artist mentors to teach the students new artistic processes, portfolio building, how to get the most out of a critique of their own work, how to give meaningful critiques of their peer's work, exhibition design, installation, marketing, and what it takes to be a professional artist. The program culminates inthe gallery where students experience curatorial practices by participating in exhibition layout, installation of artwork, promoting and hosting the opening reception.
