How To Keep It Going- A Panel Discussion with Karen Pinard, Moderator; Ann Trainor Domingue and Kathryn Kleekamp
Session 3 1:30-2:30PM
You’ve honed your artistic skills; what now? Will you rest on your well deserved laurels or will you continue to build your artistic genre? Maybe you’re not quite “there” yet, but see a broader creative presence in your future. Are you a beginner or at the apex in your journey, and are just curious about approaches others have taken in expanding the impact of their marks?
Our panelists, Ann Trainor Domingue, Kathryn Kleekamp and Karen Pinard, Moderator, have taken very different and deliberate paths and each has been uniquely successful in “keeping it going”. They will talk about their decisions and experiences, and field your questions.
