STUDIO CLUB (Membership by Interview Only)
So this is new! An advanced level STUDIO CLUB. But aside from belonging to a community of like-minded artists, what does being a member of the Studio Club entail?
The Studio Club is aimed at artists who have already established their art practice, or who have studied to post graduate level or the equivalent. The plan is to get together for a day in the studio once a month, for member artists to work on their own practice and in their chosen media, but with a sharing of ideas and feedback. Two weeks prior to the meeting, I will email everyone with a short piece of text, such as a relevant theory or philosophy, or some other resource, along with some suggestions on preparative work to be completed before we meet in the studio. The purpose of this preparation would be to stimulate new ways of thinking about your own practice, and keep the momentum of ‘doing’ and ‘making’ throughout the month.
The studio day would start with a coffee (or tea!), and discussion on ideas that have come from the text or preparative work, along with suggestions as to how to take the ideas forward into our own work. Personally, I will very much be one of the membership, a peer rather than a teacher, but as well as working alongside everyone as we continue with our personal practice, will offer individual tutorials and guidance throughout the day.
If appropriate to the individual member, I will also offer support for members in raising their profiles, individually, as artists, and will help anyone who wants to enter exhibitions or other opportunities. It is so lonely working as an artist, and very hard to be objective about our own practice and ambitions, I am sure we would all benefit from some studio time in the company of like minded souls, so I'd be thrilled if you could join me.
If you would like to know more, please contact me to arrange an interview.
