 POINTS FOR CONSIDERATION

 1. A typical one-day workshop takes about 2.5 hours to complete. One-day workshops are not suitable for all

creative projects but are a great way to introduce a topic of interest such as collage, mandalas,  poetry, creative

lettering, and give participants a taste of what art and creativity can do.

 2. There is also the option of holding a workshop over a series of 1-hour  sessions which allows more time for

experimentation, personal art making, and community building. A workshop series requires about  6 sessions a

nd can culminate in an exhibit of participants creations. This type of format covers one specific creative topic at

a time and sessions work best if held over consecutive weeks. Most projects can be set up as a workshop series.

 3. Workshops typically begin with a short presentation of some  interesting information relative to the topic and

then a period of  hands-on creating.

4. An additional 30 minutes set-up and 30 minutes clean-up time is needed.

5. For a one-day workshop or workshop series it is helpful to know  how many people plan on attending. To start

with, a group size of  10 – 15 participants is preferred. This number allows me to provide individual attention as

needed. I am willing to adjust if the workshops gain popularity.

6. If there is interest, I would also entertain the idea of developing an open-studio type of set up where people

could drop in during a specified time-frame. Creative stations could be set up i.e. a collage area, a coloring 

pages area, a craft project area etc. and people could come and go as they like.

7. I also have the idea of hosting a “meet the artist” type of event where  I could set up a schedule of local artists

to come in to show some of their work, speak about their process and what inspires them as well as  answer

questions. Perhaps light refreshments could be provided. I find creativity begets creativity and meeting other artists

helps inspire. I also believe in the power of community and supporting what other people are doing.

8. I am able to tailor workshops to fit most needs and budgets. Workshops  can be held that are cost conscious

and I have learned through my own experience that art and creativity don’t need to be expensive.
