With or without a degree, with or without formal sanctioning from established art gatekeepers, with only the permission of your relationship to the world, live out your best destiny as a creator. Learners will gain confidence in carving out their unique space in the world to render their gifts. Begin where you are transforming through writing your own job description to being armed with a very personalized plan in a supportive community of fellow seekers and doers.
Part 1: Thinking big. No BIGGER! Participants will explore and put language and images to their artistic identity. Not wasting your time to asking for the right fees all begins here.
Part 2: Participants will then present their work or an ambitious idea using any format for feedback in order to assemble a powerful personalized plan.
I have been a leader in Baltimore's art scene for almost 20 years with projects like Organic Soul Tuesdays, Poetry for the People, African American Heritage Festival, recently an Artscape anchor project and musical debut at Centerstage, and curating countless experiences. I am an independent scholar, artist and educator who has toured the world, produced hundreds of shows, and been part of a machine that distributed thousands and thousands of albums and published my book. I am a community-builder and always look to leverage my experience for the benefit of others.
