Past Workshops:

Artist Survival Kit (ASK) Workshop: Public Art

In this workshop artists, professionals, and communities will be brought together to learn the ins and outs of public art submissions and commissions. We will start with a case study of Trace with Grace Grothaus and Geoffrey Hicks. This temporary public artwork is installed at the Center of the Universe in the Tulsa Arts District.

Artist Survival Kit (ASK) Workshop: Vital Visual Documentation

This workshop is an overview of photo and video documentation practices for artists looking to improve the way they represent their work. It will cover the purpose and benefits of documentation; photographing finished art with a DSLR camera, basic lighting and digital photo processing; as well as video documentation of artistic processes or dynamic artwork, with simple editing instruction. The intent is to direct artists in considering their documentation carefully, as it often is the only representation of their work in professional situations. Your documentation should tell a compelling story about your art and practice to your clients, patrons, curators and gallerists without them having to see the physical work itself.
