PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Choosing Creativity

SKILL LEVEL: ALL LEVELS

CLASS SIZE: UP TO 30 STUDENTS

DURATION: 1 DAY / 6 HOURS

This one-day workshop is near and dear to the artist’s heart. Staying motivated, overcoming creative blocks, fanning the fires of desire, and fighting self-doubt are important topics any serious quilt artist has encountered. How do you stay focused and excited about your work?

The workshop evolved from Anna Hergert’s self-published monthly newsletters (2006 – 2012) featuring motivational suggestions and creativity coaching. Since December 2012 this newsletter was rolled over into an informative blog with an average of three posts per week..

Anna openly shares experiences, self-motivational tricks and proven techniques to keep the artist within alive and full of enthusiasm. Active discussion, group work and short, individual exercises will provide participants with countless resources to harness them with information to shorten and overcome possible future periods of creative block.

Are you ready to take the next step? Are you planning to enter juried shows for the first time? Or do you want to branch out and show your quilts in galleries and museums? Where do you start and how do you proceed? These are questions that are posed to the instructor regularly during workshops.

Anna Hergert’s one-day workshop is based on her personal journey as a full-time textile artist with a strong exhibition history. Her class covers step-by-step instruction on how to assemble a professional portfolio, which includes the key components of writing an artist statement, compiling a professional CV and composing a biography. The workshop also includes information on how to create a reliable list of contacts, the benefits of joining a networking group and various other aspects of exhibiting.

The Art of Self-Critiquing: Learn To Objectively Self-Critique and Assess your Work in Progress

SKILL LEVEL: ALL LEVELS

CLASS SIZE: UP TO 16 STUDENTS

DURATION: 1 DAY / 6 HOURS

The ability to self-critique is an under-appreciated skill that all artists should carefully cultivate. Self-critique and self-assessment allow an artist to determine weak areas and enable the development of a self-improvement game plan.

For the self-taught artist, this valuable skill is even more important, as the ability to solicit third-party input may be extremely limited. While we all have the tendency to be our harshest critic, objectivity is the best way to gain true insight on our progress. The more we practice self-critique, the sooner we are able to spot weak areas in our work, and the faster we are able to improve.
