The goal of this workshop hosted by artist Anita Kroo and Glogauair Artist Residency is to assist artists in obtaining and developing their skills for the multifaceted professional art world. Writing artist statements, constructing artist talks and presentations, assembling digital portfolios, and writing grant applications are all some of the challenging career tasks artists encounter on a regular basis as working professionals. This workshop provides artists useful guidelines and mentoring through a weekly session of group discussions, interactions and critique, in order to tackle these practical concerns. Throughout the meetings artists will have the opportunity to rehearse their oral presentation skills, develop their writing, and research themes of their work through a contemporary art context. The three main topics of this introductory workshop are artist portfolio, artist statement writing, and presenting an artist talk. By participating in this workshop, artists will be able to create competitive application materials, and gain a broader and more accurate sense of the professional art world.

Workshop Fee: 160 euros for the entire five week workshop
(Workshop consists of five consecutive three hour long weekly meetings.)
Class size is limited to 12 participants
