As a visual artist, what’s important to you?
More than ever we need art, and its ability to change the world by creating meaning and beauty.
For that to happen, you need to succeed. On your terms.
The next Klein Artist Works Course (the 20th) starts on Monday, February 20th with a free, live introductory webinar.
- The Klein Artist Works Course is for the artist who has not had successful one-person exhibits. All visual artists are welcome.
- Klein Artist Works also offers One-on-One Coaching for the artist who has a compelling, expansive vision, or an unfulfilled, powerful drive to do more.
With this email, I’m inviting visual artists to consider One-on-One Coaching. We meet live, face-to-face, on the internet, on a schedule that works for your objectives; weekly, biweekly, or monthly.
Send me an email if you’d like to explore the appropriateness, and cost, of this kind of expanded opportunity for you.
I’d like to focus on two of the artists I’m working with currently.
One is Judy Gelles, from Philadelphia, who like many significant artists, interrupted her career for a couple of decades to raise children.
Life fed her vision and art is fulfilling it through her Fourth Grade Project:
- Over the past eight years Judy Gelles has interviewed and photographed more than 300 fourth grade students from a wide range of economic and cultural backgrounds in China, India, South Korea, England, St. Lucia, Italy, South Africa, Nicaragua and multiple areas of the United States. She asked all of the students the same three questions: Who do you live with? What do you wish for? What do you worry about? The Fourth Grade Project connects children locally and globally, building bridges and tearing down walls.
Given the importance of the project, we have expanded the vision to include a book, a travelling exhibition, a documentary video, and a theatrical production.
To get here, I’ve listened to Judy, her aspirations, and enthusiasm. In turn, I’ve thrown options, ideas, and people at her based on what I’ve heard, and watched her thrive.
There’s a plenty left to do. It’s fun and meaningful. That’s important.
Could this be you? Is there an unfulfilled mission you want to accomplish? Do you sense a bigger purpose? If I think I can propel you, and what you do resonates with me, I’ll be interested in working with you.
Jorge Mañes Rubio is from
We’ve been working together monthly for 3 years
A residency in Japan a year ago led to an interest in the planets, and space travel.
Through our discussions, I challenged Jorge to become the first Artist-in-Residence at the European Space Agency. I can’t say it was easy, but it was easier than we expected
Now Jorge Mañes Rubio is designing a Temple on the Moon that considers the common best qualities of all humans – from a totally different perspective.
- The Moon Temple intends to celebrate humanity, and serve social, cultural and spiritual purposes, envisioning our interplanetary future as a unique chance to do things differently.
Let me repeat: Could this be you? Is there an unfulfilled mission you want to accomplish? Do you sense a bigger purpose? If I think I can propel you, and what you do resonates with me, I’ll be interested in working with you.
I’m ready, committed, and look forward to hearing from you.
