Creative Art Coaching with Elaine & April

Slayton House
10400 Cross Fox Lane
Columbia, MD 21044

conta.cc/2Dk5NKk
Creative ART Coaching with Elaine Weiner-Reed and April Rimpo is designed to be an interactive session focused on helping serious artists looking to bring their art and their art business to a new level. If you feel stuck in achieving your professional goals, whether it is increasing your exposure through shows and exhibitions, planning a solo exhibition, building a portfolio, finding a gallery, or understanding what people mean when they say they are looking for “a consistent body of work,” our goal is to provide you with insights on how to get beyond your current hurdles. A maximum of 7 students will be accepted into the coaching session. Each person will provide from two to four questions/areas of interest they would like discussed during the session. The entire group will be present throughout the full 2.5 hours of the coaching session. For our team coaching to be most effective, we ask each participant to focus on a particular aspect or specific goal of your art business where you desire assistance. Overly broad or generic questions have been found to be less-beneficial to every participant. We want optimum benefits for all. Come prepared to ask us about options for handling your specific art business questions, challenges, or goals. Opening Remarks: The session will begin with a coach-provided overview of your questions or areas of interest. This will get the dialogue started. Following our introductory remarks, we will give you a few minutes to refine your focus questions to make the most of your personal 15-minute Coaching session. Following our introductory remarks, we will circle through the group and spend 15 minutes with each student to discuss their area of interest. Individualized Coaching: How your personal 15-minute segment works: For each person, Elaine and April will both listen and respond during your personal session. You may direct questions to either or both artists, and both will provide input to varying degrees according to their expertise. Protocol: Respect and Mutual Support. We ask the other students to just listen during these individual 15-minute sessions. We can all learn from each other’s questions and the responses. All students are asked to remain attentive throughout the full 2.5 hours of Creative Art Coaching. We have found that students always benefit from listening to other student’s questions (as well as our responses).
