These workshops are open to all Visual and Performing Artists in the Philadelphia area, at any stage of their career - anyone who needs professional artist materials in order to communicate about their work.Participants are led through a series of prompts and structured response processes though which you will receive useful, thoughtful input and feedback on your materials from other artists.Many participants will have just as much insight and advice as I might be able to offer. I am committed to creating a supportive context in which artists can communicate thoughtfully with each other.
Collaborative Development workshops are intended to be accessible and affordable. Workshop costs are always on a sliding scale. No one will be turned away due to financial restrictions, please be in touch if you'd like to discuss alternate arrangements.
