The Flight School Fellowship is a program designed for the benefit of the professional
artist living and working in Pittsburgh. The weekly workload is heavy, and the demands
placed on fellows is high. But the results can mean a new course of action - an
opportunity to build a career in which financial and strategic goals can be sustained and
grown, with their artwork remaining the central feature of their life.

15 selected Flight School fellows will begin by spending two full days immersed in the
intensive Creative Capital Professional Development Program. Following the Creative
Capital weekend retreat, Flight School fellows will convene once per week for eight
weeks at Pittsburgh Filmmakers to workshop with guest artists, mentors, and leaders
from the Pittsburgh nonprofit and artist communities. Topics include strategic planning,
marketing, budgets, fundraising, networking, taxes, time management, websites, artist
statements, project management, and more.
