The Department of Art & Design at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in collaboration with Vibes, The Creative Arts Incubator, will host a free artist workshops at both Vibes: The Creative Arts Incubator and Rowan-Cabarrus Community College that will benefit artists from all backgrounds and enhance their art practice. The purpose of these workshops is to create greater equity within the local Arts community by ensuring that artists from all backgrounds have access to the tools necessary to successfully submit and share their work. The idea for this collaborative exhibition and workshop exercise is to elevate artists in the community that may not have access to the necessary information needed to present their art in a way expected by many professional galleries. Not having this vital information makes artists less likely to be chosen for opportunities needed to grow as a professional. These workshops will be documented via video and word document and will be an accessible resource for people to utilize in the future.
