It has been some time since we have posted anything on this blog. This is because we were waiting to find out what kind of funding, if any, we were going to receive from our primary funder. Well we now know and the Visual Connections Project has finally received its own funding separate from the VSGSA Gallery Programs. This funding now provides a more stable foundation to offer the Creative Start Open Studio Program and the newly developed Time Frames Program. But the funding is not enough to offer a full time Creative Start Open Studio Program so we will look into a number of other funding sources over the next couple of months.
We are also working on rolling out two new professional development programs, the first is the Mix: Integrating the Visual Arts into Adult Education and the other program is called the Creative Shift Workshop: An Arts Informed Human Services Program. Check back soon for more details.
