Artist Studio Archives Workshop (online)

Artist Studio Archives Workshop (online)

This 1-hour workshop introduces basic concepts and tools for managing your studio archives – the stuff you keep that documents your creative practice and legacy. Having basic skills for organizing your studio archives will make you more productive in the studio. (This is some of the “work” in art-work that is usually not discussed in art courses.) We’ll address why organizing your archives is important to any artist’s studio practice and give practical advice on artwork inventories, organizing documentation around exhibitions and other activities, what the heck to do with all that email, and establishing SMART goals for your studio archives.

Instructor info: Heather Gendron is a visual artist and is the director of Yale’s Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library. She is co-author of the free workbook Artist Studio Archives: Managing Personal Collections and Creative Legacies, which was funded with grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation and Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA).

Audience: Primarily art students and faculty, but all members of the Yale community are welcome to attend.
