We are excited to announce virtual programming.

We invite our membership to participate in live-streamed virtual art events such as critiques, studio visits, workshops, etc., starting early April and continuing throughout the year. You have the option to be a viewer, an active participant, and / or a presenter.
Regardless of forced isolation these days, with members all over the world, this will be a great way to connect us all.
Each online event will allow participants to interact with the facilitator, the presenter, and each other.
We also want to hear from you what OTHER online programs you might be interested in.
So far we received offers of:
- Leading workshops and illustrated lectures, such as: Jewish art history, Adobe CC for artists, Mixed Media art, Demo of how to make sun prints / Cyanotypes outside.
- Conducting interviews with artists and other art professionals (art historians, curators, etc.), with audience participation.
- Establishing a place for conversations and advice, possibly through Slack or WhatsApp.

Each online segment will be 15 minutes per presenter; two presenters per session. This will be done through zoom, a conferencing app that allows multiple people to participate in a meeting online. It is easy to navigate; you will need to download it on your computer.
We are planning virtual art critiques / studio visits to start early April, Sundays at 12:00 or 13:00 New York time, to accommodate most time zones. Additional topics will be scheduled on weekdays or evenings.
Do NOT email us with proposals for presentations please. That info needs to be filled out in the sign-up form.
OPTIONS for art visits:
- Prepare a presentation beforehand in video or Powerpoint and then screen share this, with the option of talking about your art while it is being shown.
- Preferably your presentation would be preceded by your live introduction.
- The visual presentation should be between 5 and 10 minutes, leaving a minimum of 5 minutes for comments, questions or critiques.
