Professional Practices and the Artist in you...

Happy New Year SAQA Central Canada friends and readers...

Hoping that you are enjoying quiet days and creative bursts of energy now that the Holidays have passed and the peace of being home and in the studio is bringing you joy!

There is much going on in the Kingston Community and the listings of workshops at the TETT Centre is growing weekly. I am sharing several workshops and am excited to have time with all of the students who come through the TETT Centre doors to learn new techniques and playful pass time activities that will follow them through their lives.

I am interested in attending the Professional Practice Series of workshops that will be delivered by painter/artist Gaetanne Lavoie at the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning.  Gaetanne will share an Introduction to Professional Practices session on January 29th, followed by a three-part series for those interested in setting the foundation for their arts practice for this new year.



From the TETT website: 
On the 29th of January, arts-focused attendees will enjoy a comprehensive 3-hour workshop that will cover the basic necessities to begin your journey toward becoming a self-sufficient professional full-time artist! Become your own boss and begin to dictate how the market receives your work. Rather than the market dictating what you create, create what you want and learn how to market, sell and finance your art.

Here is a link to the TETT Events Calendar and the workshops listed below: (scroll through for workshops and events that are of interest to you. Links available on the website for detailed information.
