How to Propose a Seminar

Seminars are a great way to improve your skills and provide information to fellow Guild members. Please see the Event and Program Application to propose a program to the Board of the Guild of Berkshire Artists. 

Seminars can be proposed by any Guild member in good standing, either to lead their own self-created seminar or to organize a seminar with another artist, mentor artist or prominent figure in the art world.

 

Just organize the seminar basics and fill out the application and along with a budget and submit it to the Board for approval. Organize the details of the seminar being proposed, any volunteers to help with the seminar and confirm the details with the Board. Follow through with making the seminar happen and organize attendees. (It is important to figure out the structure of the workshop, who helps and how and what happens when.) Set-up and run the seminar smoothly. Consider an evaluation form for participants and for the presenter as we can get useful advice for future programs. When the seminar is completed present a brief summary to the Board with the results.
