I offer online workshops that demystify the process of applying for grants. My goal is to help artists as they seek funding to support their art practices. 

About me: I've been a working artist for 15+ years and I've applied to hundreds of grants and received some too. I've also worked professionally as a fundraiser for arts organizations for more than 15 years, mainly working with foundation and government funders. I hope to pass along best practices, tips and tricks to other artists through my workshops.

Upcoming workshops: On April 17, will be offering a two-hour Zoom workshop that provides a broad overview of researching, applying for and receiving feedback on grant applications that are available to individual artists. We will discuss: how to decide what grant is right for you; how to research grants; the benefits and drawbacks of fiscal sponsorship; the basic components of a grant application and best practices in composing an artist statement, project description and budget; best practices in choosing work samples; and the panel review process. Participants will be given a packet of grant writing and grant researching resources for future reference.

The price is $40 and the time will be from 10:30am to 12:30pm PST.
