About this Event

3-Hour Visiting Artist Workshop

Sunday, May 17 – 11am-2pm

Description: Do you have a project that is stuck or challenging you? Could you use some help developing or enhancing your answer to “What kind of art do you do?” In this two part workshop we will help you identify how to progress on a project and help you generate an ‘elevator speech’ for use in your artist statement when describing your work. Bring in a piece that is unfinished, you would like to jump start, or that needs final touches and we will explore next steps through positive, constructive feedback. Next we will do a group exercise that results in a collection of words and phrases specific to each artwork. Participants, inspired by these words, will draft a short paragraph about their work that they may share with the group to receive immediate feedback. All levels welcome.

Tuition: $50

Materials: Students should bring an unfinished piece of their artwork

Location: Contemporary Craft (5645 Butler St., Pittsburgh, PA 15201)
