Just Do It! “Expanded” Program at GAS

Experimental Painting Program 

Offered at Gerrard Art Space (GAS)

Being an artist is complicated. First you need to paint, to learn and practice, and continually come up with new ideas for your paintings. And once you have found your groove and created some work, you need to find ways to share what you are doing, put it out into the world, maybe even sell it!!

The expanded “Just Do It!” program at GAS is designed to guide you along this path. By signing up and coming to class you will have an opportunity to work with a group of artists on a continual basis as you learn, create, share and show your work. All in one simple but complete program.

I am very excited to be working with GAS to offer this expanded program. Sign up and come to class, and while you focus on your artwork, develop your skills and practice, practice, practice, the gallery and their experienced staff will work with us to create opportunities to share and show your work through the gallery and their website.

The “Expanded” Program consists of the following:
  • “Just Do It!” experimental painting classes: Offered weekly at GAS – just like we have been doing in the past.
  • A gallery show for class participants: This show will have all the bells and whistles, an opening celebration, on-line marketing, social media presence, advertising in Slate etc. The first show is scheduled to run Feb 21 – March 11, 2018. The show will run for 3 weeks, professionally curated and hung by gallery staff.
  • Your own web page on the GAS website: Select a few of your best artworks. With help and encouragement from me and your fellow artists, you will write an artist statement introducing yourself and your work to the world, and GAS will post it on a web page dedicated to you. Almost like having your own website – but much easier!
