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. I'm hosting forums with TWS artists in August (Melbourne) and October (Bendigo Art Gallery). If you would like a forum hosted or a presentation given for an event or at your business please get in touch.
