    Our April Artists Discussion group was well attended and enthusiastically received.  Artists were hungry to learn more about "How to Present Your Artwork and Get Connected!"   Many thanks to our presenter, Alessandra Moctezuma, Gallery Director and Museum Studies Professor at San Diego Mesa College.

    Professor Montezuma has graciously provided us with a copy of her slides so that attendees could recall her suggestions and review the websites and Instagram feeds she used as examples. Download the document here:

    . In the courses students learn from arts professionals and discover what goes on behind-the-scenes in local museums and arts organizations. Artists can learn to present and promote their work and get connected with the San Diego art scene. 

    Professor Alessandra Moctezuma has an extensive background working as an artist, as a founder of arts collectives, as a public arts manager, and as a curator.
