WORKSHOPS ($40 each or bundle to save)


This workshop will include examining calls for submissions from public galleries and artist run centres to identify and decipher application criteria. Participants will learn how to research galleries to see where they might best apply. This workshop will address formatting and content for resumes, artist statements, cover letters, letters of intent, and tips for choosing support material, including image files, size, and quantity. Participants are encouraged to bring their proposals in progress for review and feedback. Questions are encouraged!
Instructor: Dr. Laurie Dalton

Halifax: Visual Arts Nova Scotia, 1113 Marginal Road
*Donations for the Artist Legal Information Society will be collected at the door

Artists have had images of their work copied from the web and sold on handbags and mugs. Several social media websites help promote your work, but also claim ownership over what users post. Join the Artist’s Legal Information Society in a session about copyright, including copyright online and the risks of featuring your artwork on websites and social media. The session will include lots of time for a Q&A, so use this chance to ask a lawyer about copyright!

VANS offers a special that allows visual artists to develop their professional skills at an increased discount when registering for the workshops of the same price. After you register for a Workshop Bundle please email with your name, as well as the name and location of the workshops for which you wish to register.

  2. It would be fantastic if any of these workshops were offered online or as a podcast either during or after. The workshop could be filmed then broken into parts and uploaded to utube with password protection. People could pay. It would be a great advantage for those of us who are not in Halifax and even for people not in the Maritimes. It would be great promotion too for VANS and the services it offers.
