Upcoming ACI Training & Events:

August 22: Paper to Pixel to Print: An Overview of Printing Techniques and Process for Artists
The day will consist of two parts – the morning will be a step-by step overview of the process of taking a handmade illustration into Photoshop/ Illustrator and will include a discussion of techniques and important elements of the process. The afternoon portion will be a hands-on demonstration of the same process where the instructors will take an illustration and walk the class step-by-step through the process of digitizing the work, file setup, workflow and file output.

September 13: Work It!
Present your work in progress, and we’ll work it! Anyone can bring anything they are working on and have up to five minutes to present it, ask for reactions, or get constructive feedback from everyone present. Even if you don’t have a work in progress, come down to support and connect with other artists!

September 8 - December 1: The Art of Managing Your Career
The course is open to anyone with an existing arts practice including actors, craftspeople, dancers, filmmakers, musicians, new media content creators, visual artists and writers. If you are a self-employed artist, or looking to increase the portion of your employment derived from your art, then this course is for you!
