Arts Focus: Workshop for Artists On Writing Successful Grants

As we head into the busy holiday season, artists and creators in all genres are invited to mark your calendars for Saturday, January 12, and sign-up for an Arts Grant Writing Workshop.

Gain a greater understanding of writing a competitive and compelling grant proposal as you get a better grasp of basic grant writing skills for national, regional, and local arts grant proposals!

The workshop is part of an ongoing series presented by the Arts Enterprise Institute, a project of Arlington Arts.

Instructor Glen Kessler is an internationally collected and awarded artist, as well as the founder of The Compass Atelier in Rockville, Maryland. Kessler has an MFA from New York Academy of Art and a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He has work in the public collections of Prince Charles, Amazon Web Services, Ford’s Theater and Capital One Bank, as well as hundreds of private collections around the world.

He is a 2-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant for Outstanding Figurative Art, a Prince of Wales Fellow and a Maryland State Arts Council Grant awardee. He has taught at Maryland Institute College of Art, George Washington University, George Mason University, among other institutions.

In 2013 he founded The Compass Atelier in Rockville in order to teach a cohesive curriculum of artistic study of his own design. Check out the video below about the school!

The workshop takes place on Saturday, January 12, from 1-4 p.m. at the Arlington Cultural Affairs Arts Enterprise Institute.

Note: Registration for this workshop will close at 7 p.m. on January 11, but class size is kept small in order to maximize the benefit to the participant, so register now as sessions fill up quickly.
