bringing arts-related speakers from various disciplines to our community to share their specified info and skills
On select third Thursdays of the month, DVAA hosts individuals whose work or area of expertise is specifically geared toward artists and creatives (of all sorts). Some past examples of this include a lawyer speaking about copyright law, a curator speaking about her methodology, a framer discussing how to best present artwork in a framed setting, and a voiceover actor and teacher assisting artists with their vocal techniques for when they give artist talks.
