Presenting the new SPRING SESSION 2011 March 31 - April 9, 2011
Application deadline: January 20, 2011

The Spring Session is oriented to the artist who has a body of work and wants to take it to the next level. The 3 day group editing workshop is dedicated to guiding each participating artist towards solidfying their body of work through discussions on sequencing, editing and critiquing.The workshop will be led by a leading arts professional.

After the Editing Workshop, the presentations will be made over a series of 3 days and will consist of a series of artist lectures, studio visits, publishers who will present their small presses and also a round table discussion about on-demand publishing.

Finally, the portfolio critiques end the 10 day Session. Based on the idea of the classic port- folio reviews, the critique structure is a chance for each individual artist to have a conversa- tion with a group of 4 to 5 arts professionals who have been carefully chosen based on their expertise in the field.
