This workshop is designed to help artists authentically integrate marketing and documentation into their creative practices. In my experience, most artists struggle to promote themselves and their work. This workshop will demonstrate how we can blend the making and sharing of the work to support of creative practice During our time together, we will use the making of works on paper as a backdrop to learn how to share our creative process to grow our followers (fans) online. Social media has allowed artists to give new audiences a view into their work and practice. This audience can be converted into future collectors and patrons.
Utilizing the devices that usually distract us from our work, we’ll try our hand at creating compelling images for the web. For our works on paper, we will use paper cutting, pasting, and drawing to develop sketches, mood boards, and maquettes. The workshop will strike the balance of being informative and reflective. We will leave the workshop with a better understanding of how and what to share online. Students are encouraged to bring old sketchbooks and notes for reference and inspiration, as well as their drawings and prints for collage material. Note: It is recommended that students have a smartphone, tablet or iPod with a camera for this workshop.
