This is artworxLA’s sixth year organizing a job fair for advanced-level students and alumni. Over the years, the organization has developed strong relationships with corporations that employ individuals with education and experience in the arts. In 2008-09, artworxLA implemented a pilot mentorship program pairing four advanced students with professionals in magazine publishing, commercial television production, painting, and poetry. The pilot was a success and inspired a desire to expose more students to employment opportunities in the creative sector — jobs they may have never considered. This year’s panelists included Hot Topic, MIRADA Studios, a storyboard artist that works with MARVEL, and a toy designer.
