Collaborative Development means artists working together to support our artistic and professional development!
Upcoming Workshops in Philadelphia:
April 5: Artist Statements
April 26: Refining Artist Statements
These workshops are open to all Visual and Performing Artists in the Philadelphia area, at any stage of their career - anyone who needs professional artist materials in order to communicate about their work.
Participants are led through a series of prompts and structured response processes though which you will receive useful, thoughtful input and feedback on your materials from other artists.
I expect that many participants will have just as much insight and advice as I might be able to offer. I am committed to creating a supportive context in which artists can communicate thoughtfully with each other.
My intention is for these workshops to be accessible and affordable. Workshop costs are always on a sliding scale. No one will be turned away due to financial restrictions, please be in touch with me if you'd like to discuss alternate arrangements.
Workshops are from 7-9pm, and are held at my studio in Philadelphia at 1241 Carpenter Street, near Broad & Washington.
Each workshop is on a sliding scale of $15-30 per person
(recommended $25 per workshop)
$10 - 25 for currently enrolled students
