Welcome to your class!

I am excited you are here to learn more about the behind-the-scenes of applying to open calls and practical advice you can use to help your application.
There is a lot of information that we will cover, so make sure you have a place to take notes.

Lastly, before diving in, these are the types of lessons I teach in The Works! If you want lessons that teach you how to make major moves in your professional practice sign up for our membership or take a course!

This is for all the artists who would rather be in the studio but want to take their career to the next level.

I would love to walk you through what to do and give you goals so you can do it. 

I know you are busy, so I make it as easy as possible so that you can get BACK to making. 

Now, onto our class!

Live events where you can learn from professionals in the arts industry. Build confidence as they share their experience and knowledge with you.


Artist talks and crits! Learn from artists. Each month we bring in artists to give an artist talk and you can sign up to have them review your work!
