APG is pleased to announce a new Master Class –  Sustaining Your Creative Practice; A Critique-Focused Workshop to Level-Up Your Career with Jennifer Murray, Executive Director of Filter Photo.

This business-focused workshop is an opportunity to refine current photographic projects, discuss project development overtime, as well as discuss best practices for preparing work for exhibition or professional portfolio reviews.  Conversation will be tailored to the group’s needs for advancing their projects, defining personal goals, and finding avenues for sharing work. Professional practices for sustaining long-term projects through grants and other career building tools will be emphasized.

This workshop is ideal for makers at any level of practice – career or hobby-based. The focus will be on developing a critical dialog and establishing goals and evaluation skills in addition to editing and sequencing a series of artworks towards the creation of a cohesive body of work. Jennifer will be discussing the gaps in your portfolio and marketing strategies, then discussing how to fill the gaps to level up your work.
