Legal Issues in Visual Arts Portfolios

April 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: Zoom Webinar

Carefully curating a portfolio of your works can feel infinitely more complex when thinking about copyright law. What do you do when most of your works are commissions? Can you include fanart? What even is a work-for-hire? Through this VLA class, you will learn about fair use and the ways it could protect the works in your visual arts portfolio. Additionally, you will walk away with simple and effective ways to safeguard your portfolio rights.

Instructors: VLA Legal Externs (Reece & Mishthi)
