Presentation Skills for Artists

Are you making a presentation about your work? Giving a gallery talk for your solo show? It can be challenging to speak about your process and your output in a way that bridges to your audience. Especially if you’d like them to become supporters or collectors of your current work or follow you as you produce new work. Or, perhaps you’re seeking good press from the writers and critics in the room. In any of these situations, the pressure is real.
How do you help your listeners make a meaningful connection with your work?

-Start with a memorable main message that sets the theme for your talk, and then continue with key points that support that message. 

-Introduce stories and analogies that are highly relatable, helping the audience connect in a more personal way to your process and your output.

-Take the audience “behind the work” by highlighting specific pieces that illustrate certain concepts or techniques and how your process evolved for this body of work.

-Create a conversational atmosphere by actively engaging the audience with questions that encourage participation and reflection, allowing them to query you about the work. 

My coaching can help you with content preparation, presentation, rehearsal, and post-event feedback.
