Highlighting & preserving women in Art
Trestle’s Community Classes Program offers instruction in a wide variety of artist techniques and theories, as well as training in professional practices. This program serves a dual purpose of educating artists and creating jobs for highly-trained teaching artists.
dates: 1/29, 2/26, 3/5, 4/2, 5/7
Each class runs from 6:30-9:30pm
The key to fulfilling your professional goals is to be able to effectively, clearly and beautifully communicate who you are as an artist and what you do, in person, in writing and online. Since our art work is often seen on a screen and not in person, let’s make sure we have the best possible tools to give an amazing first impression. In this five series workshop we will explore:
1/29/15: Goal Setting & Achieving (What are your professional goals, what do you have to do to achieve them and do you have a plan to make them happen?)
2/26/15: Writing About Your Work (Yes your art work speaks for itself but the writing that accompanies it is essential.)
3/5/15: Crafting compelling promotional materials (Beautiful design is a must when telling people about what you do.)
4/2/14: Showcasing Your Work (Is your work photographed and displayed in the best possible way online in order to give your viewer the best possible insight into your work and how you make it?)
5/7/14: Creative Marketing (How do you tell the world about what you do? Let’s make sure what you send out is clear, engaging and authentic.)
Each DELVE workshop will build on the one before, and they are open to artists at any stage of their careers, whether you are just starting out or need to refresh the way you communicate your work. The end result will be a renewed sense of how you talk about yourself as an artist, your work, and how you communicate your art work to the world online. We encourage each artist to bring images of their work, something to take notes with and be willing to share– all DELVE workshops encourage an open environment of exchange.
*On 2/26/15 please feel free to bring a camera you use to photograph your work and a piece you’d like to document, if possible. Each session will offer assignments and tips to make the most progress on your online presence in between workshop meetings.
