For visual artists who want to approach new opportunities with better self-promotion, communicating clearly about your work is essential. This workshop and discussion engages spoken and written prompts along with group interaction to increase your ability to make clear, concise statements. We’ll discuss different types of audiences and help each other gain confidence to find the right words.

Part of Professional Practice, Lane Arts Council’s new professional development program for artists and creatives. Participants continually learn together through an ongoing four month series of workshops paired with group discussions.
