IGNITE: In Studio
This professional development series provides face to face encounters with established and emerging artists and makers. It is an opportunity to learn about the artists’ individual practices and to see their studio environments. Participants will be able to ask questions about medium-specific equipment and materials, how the artists came to establish their studios, how their businesses operate and about their working processes.
