At various stages of art making, you can’t see the path ahead. Your initial enthusiasm for your project wanes, or the work seems stuck.  It helps to stop and take a few steps back to see where you’ve been and assess where you might go from here. This workshop is for artists who would like to share: work in progress, a completed body of work, or a plan for future work. We will discuss ways to look at your work in this intermediate stage, before it’s ready to leave the studio. We’ll discuss problems that stop us from doing our best work, and ways to ward off situations that drain our creative energy.

 

Each artist will have a chance to talk about his or her work, followed by discussion.

 

Pre-requisite: working book artist, photographer, or visual artist currently involved in creative work. Bring a notebook, a willingness to participate and one or two pieces of work or a project outline.

Women of the Archives is an ongoing series celebrating the University of Wisconsin-Madison libraries' acquisition of the Woodland Pattern archive, and of the rich history that this archive represents.  

 

Women of the Archives was made possible with generous support from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation :: Mary L. Nohl Fund
