About the Workshop:

This virtual workshop is taught by instructor Leah Mayers. 

We all want to know that our work holds meaning for others, come practice the connections we seek when art meets its audience. In an intimate group we will look deeply at art works in progress with a focus on the artist’s areas of inquiry. No prior experience is necessary only a willingness to work together as artists and responders, with a creative constraint (CRP method), toward a shared goal to make works in progress the best they can be. Please come to class with an idea or a project you can show on Zoom and a question or challenge you are facing with your work. This workshop is for those makers who crave support and rigor, community and concrete direction; I believe you will leave your session wanting to rush back to the studio!


Required Materials:

A way to take notes. Bring a work in progress that can be viewed easily on Zoom, may be easiest to share pictures/slides but that is up to students.
