Workshop by artist Carole Shepheard

The Mercury Bay Art Escape Trust is pleased to present a “Professional Practice” workshop to the artists of the Coromandel Peninsula. Carole Shepheard will facilitate the “Finding your Way” workshop. The trustees of the Art Escape Trust see the workshop as an opportunity to support both established and emerging artists’ professional development and a platform for them to meet and network with like-minded people. The workshop will cover marketing, promotion, collaboration, professional support, finding creative networks, cv writing, websites, a feedback session and much more. See for full the course outline.

Carole will be the guest speaker at the opening launch of the 2015 Art Escape Open Studio Tour and Taste of the Tour Exhibition at Hot Waves Café, Hot Water Beach on 6 March 2015. She is a renowned artist, educator and writer and has a wealth of experience and knowledge to offer. She enjoys being part of the small Kawhia community and puts particular value on the work being done by artists in places outside large cities, where she believes new energy is found and ideas are expressed in individual and challenging ways.

The workshop will be held at the Cooks Beach Resort Lounge, 874 Purangi Road, Cooks Beach from 9:30am to approx 3:00pm on Monday 9 March 2015. The cost is $30 for the day, bring your own lunch.
