WHAT I WISH I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL

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.

17th March – The Nuts & Bolts of being an Artist
Erika and Ilona have both been practicing for over 20 years and have learned the hard way about so many bits and pieces about the business of being an artist.  They want to save you that time and share what they have learned!  In this workshop they will cover things like writing an artist statement, artist CV, documenting your work, cataloguing your work, packaging, keeping records and so much more.  If there are specific things you’d like to know please email us your questions to answer!

7th April – Grant Writing
Writing successful grant applications can be a daunting task for many artists. In this session, Linden New Art Director, Melinda Martin, will share some tips and advice on researching and preparing applications. Melinda has written many grant applications and assessed applications for a number of funding bodies. In this session, she will share some advice about common errors, the importance of great images or video to support the application and the importance of aligning your project with the strategic goals of the potential funder.
