This class will meet online, Tuesday afternoon from 12-4pm EST.
There is a sense of mystery and misunderstanding surrounding this new form of visual currency. One thing is for certain—The NFT has radically changed the way art is sold and purchased in the online arena. As artists, how can we use NFT’s (Non Fungible Tokens) to leverage the online art market, promote our careers, and gain a sense of independence?
Galleries are closing their brick-and-mortar spaces. Museums and non-for-profit spaces are struggling to deliver art to a larger public. How should one navigate this new, uncharted territory?
Kris Graves is a pioneer. He adapted quickly and is working to help other artists understand the full potential of this exciting (and sometimes confusing) new concept.
What is an NFT?
What makes an NFT unique?
How is one made?
How is an NFT valued, purchased, sold, and traded?
What benefits does the NFT offer to Photographers or Digital Artists?
Kris Graves will answer all of these questions and more.
We invite you to participate in this intensive workshop that will include lecture, guest appearances, practical exercises and discussion. You will leave with a deeper understanding of this radical new development, and a greater sense of how to employ this concept in your own professional practice.
