My advice is to have something to put in the resume.
Get involved with volunteer experiences with children
- teaching art at a local art resource center might be
good. Maybe do some after school teaching in an
underprivileged area. How about getting some lesson
plans "published" - Send me some of your lessons and I
will put them on Incredible Art Department. Do
something that sets you a a part for all of the other
Make your cover letter more specific for the school
youare writing it to. Youcan have some general
information iin it - but also gear the letter to the
school/psotiion you are applying to.
I would be happy to look over your resume and cover
letter when you get it done and give you suggestions
on how to improve it (send them OFF LIST to me - my
address below - or copy address from above)
