It’s a new, free workshop series for creatives of all types

The next workshop:

Working with Interior Designers and Art Consultants Diane Rath of The Rath Project + More

June 7th 5:30-7:30pm

Metro Art Studios Crown Gallery, Bridgeport

Learn about growing and nurturing valuable relationships with interior designers and art consultants from two perspectives – from an artist who works with designers and from designers who incorporate art into their designs. Find out what designers are looking for, what to expect when working with a designer, and how to get started.  

Stay after the Artist WorkLab for The Creative Collective: an artist gathering to connect, collaborate, and vibe. A safe space to share your art with fellow creatives and gain inspiration at the same time. All disciplines are welcome.
