Artist's Assistance at Western Michigan University
over 2 years ago
I would prepare a list of questions to ask the artist on what will your responsibilities be, for example is it organizing the artwork and documenting it, is it assisting in the art making process, is it just administrative work?
I would also research current art trends to see what is recent and upcoming and refresh my knowledge on art terms, such as Baroque, Rococo art, Precisionism, etc.
Research the artist you will be assisting and understand their medium, work style, and artist statement.
