In this two-part workshop, Sharon Louden will offer visual artists strategies for building a sustainable career and creative life. Over two sessions, Sharon will outline basics of artist communications and tools to strengthen professional networks and grow relationships into communities. The workshop series is specifically designed to empower artists, demonstrate pragmatic approaches to sustaining a creative life, and demystify the “artworld.” Louden will share the expertise she has gained through collaborations and conversations with gallery owners, museum professionals, critics, curators, nonprofits, residencies, academics and others in different art communities.
Topics will include:
Building an audience
Understanding your place in the art ecosystem
Building relationships and maintaining contacts
Mapping and tracking networks and relationships
Research and database skills
There will be multiple touch-points of correspondence between Sharon and participants throughout the duration of each part that will include extensive sharing of documents and answering of questions. In between these sessions, participants will have access to an online forum where they can stay in touch, share information and resources, and build community outside of the class sessions.
Session One: Monday, March 7, 7-8:30pm ET
