Sample Art Resume

It is a common belief that artists do not need a resume. The fact is they do. Most artists have two versions of their resume - one in brief and one in detail. Achievements are the most important part of an artist resume. Therefore, examples of their work in their field of literature, music, painting, drama, singing or architecture and the like, should be prioritized in the resume. Formal training is important to sharpen the natural skill the artist is born with and will form the main part of the resume in the absence of experience.

Sample Art Resume 2

The one thing that separates a true artist from other professionals is the high level of dedication they have for their work. Artists love their work and do it with their heart. Which is why the Empire State building is much more appealing than any other ordinary building. This dedication is reflected in the work of an artist and should be the main part of an artist resume. The resume should start by mentioning the field (painting, sketching, music, dance, literature, drama etc.) and level where the candidate seeks employment. Formal training is necessary and so is some commercial knowhow.

Sample Art Resume 3

In the modern age artists need to possess an element of business sense in addition to their natural ability. What is also needed is formal training and experience to fine tune their skills. Finally, an artist should not only be good, but also seen to be good. And the best way to show his skill is to write an effective resume. The skill of the artist has to be shown by mentioning the major achievements, technical qualifications and the business/professional touch. Achievements should be accorded priority as these give a live picture of the candidate's talent.
