What’s the distance between where your art career is and where you want it to be? Can you visualize getting there? Would access to over 200 hour-long webinars with art experts sharing what worked for them and offering their advice make a significant difference?
Klein Artist Works puts the experts right in the room with you. Besides the archive of over 200 webinars, the live, online course connects working artists with the authorities who have advice to give and stories to tell.
During the 12-week online course, subscribers meet with a range of art world professionals: gallery owners, critics, collectors, museum directors, art consultants, academics, and international artists. These specialists share what they’ve learned while working in the art world, providing candid answers to difficult questions. The best guidance comes from those who have been there, and this is a chance to hear from the top.
Theaster Gates, Karen Atkinson, Michelle Grabner, Jerry Saltz, and Simon de Pury are just some of the more than 100 authorities who have visited Klein Artist Works. When you sign up you’ll not only take part in the current session, but you’ll also receive access to the entire past library of webinars. Every artist has to face his or her own hurdles, but this collection provides an encyclopedic collection of precedent to rely on.
Klein Artist Works runs 3 times a year, in February, June, and September. The next session begins on Monday, September 29, with 2 hour-long sessions taking place every subsequent Monday through mid-December. Besides access to the online archive, Paul Klein, the creator of the course, will provide participants with individual assistance on, with feedback and recommendations on career direction; and an in-depth, one-on-one studio visit / strategy session.
Curious? Tune in to the introductory webinar on September 29 for a taste. No charge. No obligation.
