Best Practices, Artist Demos, Seminars, and Discussions

 

Third Tuesdays at 3 pm and Select Dates and Times

Join the Guild in watching the creative process of one of our fine artists. You will get to see them working for about an hour and explaining why they do what they do. You will be able to ask questions. Since our artists work in a variety of media, over time, you will be exposed to a large number of processes and approaches. The program may be a simplified “how to do” something or it may be a broader demonstration of how to start something, how to finish something, how to fix something or how to proceed when they are stuck. This program is usually held on Tuesdays at 3pm but it can be pre recorded and shown another time upon request.

Please refer to the Calendar for details about specific upcoming events.

Artists are invited to a panel discussion led by Susan and David Honneus  on zoom BEST Practices (Professional/Development). What topics would you like to consider in future seminars and panel discussions? Bring your ideas!

Possible topics which have been proposed include:
“licensing our art”
“What happens to our art when our heirs get it?”
“how to ship large art works?”
“What did you learn The hard way and can share with other artists”
"to lease or not to lease"

Please share with us any answers you have to this question as probably most folks would be interested in what you learned.

 

One offering is “Color Interaction using Josef Alber's course"  (five of us met weekly  from January to June, learned a lot and plan to continue this fall and want to share this with other interested artists willing to work in small groups (we zoomed!).

 

What are YOUR ideas?
