The workshop, scheduled to hold from 3-9 May, 2011, will emphasize the teaching of participants’ skills, so that they can then produce affordable, sellable and market-driven art. Participants will acquire an entrepreneurial advantage, often de-emphasized in the art school curriculum. Some of the processes to be taught will include craft procedures that could be translated into critical artistic statements for the future. The selected areas for this first workshop are:

Kathleen Stafford, Peter Akinwunmi, Sam Ovraiti, Ariyo Oguntimehin, and a few other professional artists will be directing each workshop area.
