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.
SOCIAL MEDIA & MARKETING – May 12th
Ilona’s work has been featured in The Age, frankie magazine, Harper’s Bazaar Australia, art magazines, local newspapers and various online publications. Come along and learn how to market your exhibitions, how to approach the media and how to use social media to your advantage as an artist. Plus at the end we’ll do an instagram tutorial to explain the features and what they’re used for.
REFLECTING ON PRACTICE – June 9th
How we think about our practice changes it and often our reflection on practice can be intuitive, instinctual or automatic. In order to deepen this reflection, we can use tools to push dead-ends, reveal what’s underneath and question the habitual.
Yvette Grant is the current skills adviser in The Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, at The University of Melbourne. In this session, she will take you through two methods of reflecting on practice: firstly, reflecting through writing using the approaches of Jenny Moon; and secondly, reflecting through the practice of a philosopher’s walk.
*This session is limited to 30 attendees
$20 (afternoon tea included)
Places are limited
