The Artist Is In
Wednesdays at 4:00 pm 
FREE to Everyone
(A Zoom address will be emailed as part of registration confirmation)

 

As artists, we are powerful models for creative and critical thinking. And although we are not new to periods of isolation or reflective thought, COVID-19 has radically changed our routines and put our adaptive skills to the test. We feel now the importance of community, connection, and conversation even more now that we are forced into separation. Organized by artist and PAFA staff member Matt Herzog, this group conversation will be centered around weekly themes, featured guest artists, and the needs of our maker community in order to engage fellow artists also tackling the challenges of managing a creative at-home practice.

Register once, come to as many as you like. This space is for you.

5.27 CHANGE: There is great potential in artistic shifts, whether it’s when we alter our subject, our approach, or even our medium. But during a time when the world appears to shift each day, how do we maintain a fresh practice without feeling overwhelmed? Should we follow suit and embrace the shift or stay dedicated to a practice we’ve always been developing?

6.3 INGENUITY and GRIT: An artist’s methodology is rooted in grit and designed by ingenuity. So how do we develop those qualities? What can we do to embolden our minds and extend the reach of our artistic practice

6.10 BARRIERS: Whether it be by our own hand or that of society, we often experience barriers. So in a time when the great art-machine is being restarted, what barriers should we take to task and are there any to build? What can we change in this time of pause?
