Our Workshops   

We work with state and local arts organizations, foundations, artist collectives, not-for-profits, fellowship programs, art schools, colleges and universities nationwide to provide customized professional development opportunities to artists. 

If your organization serves professional artists who are interested in advancing their careers, we will work with you and your staff to select and present a workshop, webinar or blending learning package that fits your budget and best suits the needs of your artists. Download the 2015 Workshop Guide for complete descriptions of our offerings, and visit the Host a Workshop page for information on how we work with partner organizations.

If you are an individual artist looking to learn with us, visit our workshop and webinar calendar for a complete list of upcoming opportunities.
