PHOTOGRAPHY FOR BEGINNERS
Learn to take the photographs you want with the gear you have! Shooting manually gives you the control to create better reference images for your practice. I teach this workshop regularly at The Art Room (Melbourne).
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS
THE ART ROOM hosts regular Professional Development workshops for artists in the series WHAT I WISHED I LEARNED AT ART SCHOOL. Topics covered include: Social media for artists / Artist websites / Preparing canvases / Crowfunding / Taxation for artists / How to host a successful exhibition / Applying for grants and residencies / and much more! These are a wonderful resource for artists by artists sharing their knowledge, taught by professional artists - including myself. Workshops are held once a month on a Saturday afternoon. Please join The Art Room's mailing list for details.
If you prefer a one-on-one approach I offer mentoring sessions via skype or in person. I've been a professional artist for 20 years and can help you with a variety of aspects of your career such as preparing for exhibitions, how to create opportunities, marketing, how to create and complete a long term project, plus conduct portfolio reviews. If you would like to work with me please email a short description of what you'd like help with and we'll schedule a time for our session.
Please note there is limited availability for these sessions, the investment is $80 per hour.
I'm available for speaking engagements and hosting forums with artists for the public. I was recently invited to speak about my practice to 50 Victorian Studio Arts teachers, and I also spoke about my life long project This Wild Song (TWS) on International Women's Day with thanks to Bendigo Art Gallery. If you would like a TWS forum hosted or a presentation given for an event or at your business please get in touch.
