You’ll leave feeling empowered and inspired to establish studio visits as a regular part of your studio practice, and ensure more opportunities happen in the year ahead.

This session covers:

  • Why studio visits are fundamental to a sustainable creative career
  • How to invite art world professionals to do a studio visit
  • How to prepare your studio
  • How to prepare a focused presentation
  • How to establish a positive, rewarding experience
  • How to follow up the visit

Make a habit of connecting to new people and inviting them to visit you in the studio either IRL or online.

You don’t have to have a giant or fancy studio and you may feel more comfortable having online studio visits but set a target & commit to doing a minimum amount of studio visits monthly and annually.

You can invite artists, curators, producers, writers, and anybody that you would feel excited to have a conversation with about your work.

This habit of researching and connecting with interesting people is a useful exercise to ensure you stay connected to current trends & the ever-shifting arts landscape.

Ask existing champions & friends for recommendations & research the CVs of peers & similar artists.

People who like artwork are usually curious about the artist behind it, their story, motivations and are keen to learn more and flattered to be invited.

Aims of studio visits:

  • To educate, share and invite feedback on your work
  • To learn and get fresh perspectives
  • To establish a positive relationship
  • To build new networks
  • To create opportunities
