We’re so excited to announce our new series of professional development workshops… WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL!! Drawing on the talents and expertise of various professionals, The Art Room wants to positively contribute to the development of emerging artists by offering this series of workshops.
The next workshop in this series is ARTIST PATHS with artist Megan Evans!
Artist Paths is a conversation in which artists are invited to look at their career from the end of their life, which is hopefully long and fruitful.
They are then asked if they achieved EVERYTHING they could possibly want and are fulfilled and happy with their life as an artist, what would they have achieved. They then look back from there and design a strategy for getting there. This is after a cold hard look at the design of the art world loosely constructed as the Art World Pyramid.
This conversation is designed to be both exciting and inspiring AND grounded in reality. Most people go away with a glazed look on their faces but with some realistic idea of what it takes to be where they want to be.
Megan Evans has a 34 year career as an artist and most of what she will share is from her mistakes and also her experience of the international art world through her family connection with well known artist William Kentridge.
