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

Workshops feature presentations from regional and national experts, individual and group work, and assignments to be completed following the workshop. Participants then come back together two weeks after the workshop for group discussion with an artist facilitator and to debrief completed work.

Artists are highly encouraged to sign up for the full series to benefit from ongoing learning and a collaborative learning cohort.

All workshops and discussions will take place virtually this year. Although we miss in-person events, this allows us to hear from top professionals from around the country!

Thank you to artists who completed the Lane County Artist Feedback Survey and/or attended Feedback Sessions. These perspectives helped us plan this series to most effectively meet the current needs of artist and creatives.

Registration has closed.
