Embodying Process: An Artlab Workshop

with Amber Imrie

In this non-hierarchical workshop, artists will offer each other critical feedback, from idea to fruition, culminating in an online group exhibition of artworks workshopped. Artists will get to know each other, forming connections to strengthen deep and meaningful feedback between each other’s art practices. This workshop is created to help support artists who are going through a transition; maybe starting a new project, series, or looking to refine their process. While all Artlabs have the same basic structure, each session is responsive to the attending artists' overlapping interests, needs, and the approach of the session’s guide. This workshop is lead by Amber Imrie. Amber brings to Artlab methods for recognizing our creative process through embodied creative living. Various exercises will be shares with attending artists to help them take their work to the next level. The Virtual Exhibition Reception for this class will happen on Friday, Sep 2nd with the online Exhibition Dates: Sep 2nd - Dec 2nd, 2022.
