Grant My Wishes

This intensive hands on workshop focuses on proposal writing for grants. Writing speculative proposals is challenging. By writing then being part of a mock jury you will experience how a jury reads proposals and what works well in that context. The workshop includes a comprehensive handout with resources to take home.

The Brain Storm

An unstructured studio drop-in where artists can meet, talk, brainstorm, share techniques, materials or ideas they are engaged with.

Unstuck

Being creative is hard, and staying creative over the long term can be difficult. This workshop provides knowledge and tools to help you navigate around creative obstacles. I will present relevant research on creativity and the group will engage in a number of exercises designed to liberate their creative minds. Participants will reflect on what worked for whom and consider why, enabling the development of individual techniques to guide you through your creative block.

Mini Crit with guest artist Micah Lexier

You will receive honest feedback and encouragement from two established artists. Between the three of us, we will explore ways to further the work so that it is more compelling and engaging. Choose between a 30, 45 or 60 minute critique with myself and Micah.
