Social media has changed, literally, everything. It has toppled governments, upended regimes and cast much-needed light on atrocities across the globe. Events that take place halfway around the world are beamed almost immediately to our computer screens and smartphones with a speed that borders on the magical. Led Black’s Social Media 101course will focus on Twitter and Instagram and will empower artists to expand, engage and cultivate their audience. Led Black’s beginner social media class distills his almost decade-long knowledge of social media to simplify the sometimes-mystifying social media landscape. The class will provide tips, tools and insights for artists to connect meaningfully with their followers.
En Foco, in partnership with NoMAA, is pleased to present a bilingual workshop for emerging and established photographers in digital editing and production. We will be discussing the process and advantages of using layer masks for enhancing images. Topics covered will include dodging and burning, color correction, and organization to create productive workflow using Bridge, Photoshop, and Lightroom. This workshop is essential for emerging photographers who want to learn new techniques and for established photographers who want to brush up on their knowledge.
A picture is worth a thousand words: what will yours be? Join us in this two-day artist workshop conducted by renowned artist Fabiola Jean-Louis, and Tone Taghon, owner of Uptown Printing Studio and Color Expert. The workshop is ideal for all artists, from beginner to advanced, who want to grow, express and explore new ways to see their art.
Ambassadora, in partnership with Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), is pleased to present “What’s Your Story? Numbers Never Lie,” a grantwriting workshop for emerging artists and nonprofits that focuses on the critical budget narrative. Once you have the story narrative of who you are and what you’re asking for and why, it’s vital that you create a clear budget narrative that matches and supports your compelling story narrative. We will discuss finding grants, the components of grants, crafting grant applications with the majority of our time spent on crafting the budget. This workshop will be friendly to even those who are afraid of budgets!
This is a bilingual workshop for those who are interested in developing their social skills. You will participate in exercises, practices, and scenarios that will help you become a confident speaker. This is not a conventional public speaking class. You will not learn about formal and informal speeches, elocution, persuasion or diction.
