Charting an Art Practice

with Regula Russelle
Thursdays: November 8 & 15; 6-8pm

All artists, from professional to amateur, grapple with: how to make room for artmaking in our daily lives, how to respect our limitations and make peace with uncertainty, how to create realistic goals and work toward them, and how to connect with an audience. This participatory workshop explores how to shape a life in the (book) arts through writing, “map making,” conversation, and by considering examples.

Certificate: 4 hours, Category C or D

$75 ($65 members) + $5 supply fee
Certificate enrollees only: early registration rate $55, valid through 10/18/18
