The turn out was great! Creative individuals from many different fields were in attendance to hear Tricia. It was the third workshop I had participated in with Tricia and it was still packed with new and innovated ideas. She is a fantastic speaker.
Session takeaways were: understanding your brand, the importance of a website, strategies to drive customers to your product or service, and marketing tips and tricks. I’ve already implemented a couple of her suggestions: updating my professional photo (coming soon), checking settings on linked in and updating information, as well as giving my social media a new look.
If you are in the creative service industry (or thinking about entering the industry) whether photography, art, food, writing, or designing, and you want people to find you and purchase your products or services, email the Westwood Artists at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added their mailing list. We are already working with Tricia to host a fall workshop with a focus on instagram or facebook.
This Saturday, March 12th from 10am-2pm, the Westwood Recreation Department will host “March into Summer” (10% off registration fees when you sign up for summer classes March 12-15). I will be hanging out with other teachers and students talking up my summer classes: 2D and 3D Art in July. Wegmans is sponsoring this event.
3D Art ~ explore three dimensions while learning about carving, modeling and sculpture using recycled products, mixed media, clay and more. July 11-14.
2D Art ~ explore the mark on a flat surface while learning about graphite, colored pencils, watercolor and more. July 18-21
I’m thankful to the Westwood Recreation Department for providing a place where I can teach children to express themselves through creative means.

Join us for the Art Opening for Oliver!
Exhibition Dates: March 3, 2016 to April 30, 2016
The challenge: “What does grit look like … courage, bravery, strength of character? We’re paying tribute to Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist in conjunction with the Parish Players production of OLIVER! Dickens sets the innocence of childhood against the squalor and corruption of the city. He showed us what grit meant to him in his novel. We challenge you to define grit in your art… in a portrait of a hard scrabble city dweller? In the stark landscape of urban industrialism? Show us!”
