A Professional Craft Artist, as defined by the ACC, has specialized training in their discipline, either academic and/or self-taught or traditional knowledge, and has professional recognition amongst his or her peers and/or public. He or she should also operate a studio practice and create a distinctive body of work that is sold and/or exhibited locally, nationally, and/or internationally. The Professional Membership is intended to best benefit craft artists who are on an active career path, expanding their body of work and business.
Unlike many other craft organizations, ACC Professional members can also be those with craft related expertise including: academics, teachers, researchers, curators, writers, and arts administrators.
