We’re bringing you an extra edition of artist opportunities this week to let you know about two upcoming workshops you might be interested in:
Public Art Workshop

Washington Project for the Arts, in collaboration with Arlington Public Art, presents a free, participatory lecture as part of the 2012-2013 Professional Practices series, for artists and project sponsors (developers, planners, private and public agency administrators) interested in sharpening their skills preparing for public art commissions. St. Louis based artist and Washington University Sam Fox School of Architecture Professor Ben Fehrmann will be our guest for Where to Start: Site Analysis and Design Thinking for Public Art.

Alexandria Artist Grants
Monday, October 22, 7:00 pm and Thursday, October 25, 2:00 pm. The Alexandria Commission for the Arts is conducting two workshops to provide information about its annual grant program. The goals of the Commission’s grant program are to encourage artistic excellence in the City; assist Alexandria-based arts organizations in improving their financial, administrative, and management capabilities; and provide individual artists with opportunities to create, perform, and present their works. Applications for grants are due November 16. For more information, click here.
And don’t forget about the free Liquitex paint demonstration happening Monday at The Art League!
