Performing and Creative Artists as a Resource in the World of Work.
Performing and creative artists from all art forms develop particular skills and abilities that make them a valuable resource in the world of work. The art forms of dancing, singing, acting, drawing, sculpting, or writing impact and shape individuals with positive personal qualities, abilities, traits and skills that are marketable in other areas besides the arts. This concept serves as a foundation for helping the individual to feel a sense of hope and confidence that they can participate and succeed in another field. Career counselors and counseling professionals can benefit from this information. Assisting artists to identify and claim these special skills is helpful in working with them one on one to make changes in their lives, either to create income or transition to a new career. This chapter attempts to inform and enlighten career counselors and other counseling professionals with an approach to assist creative and performing artists with career services. (GCP)
