In this session, self-identified artist-parents are invited to make informal work in the shared space of a virtual studio. Distraction will be encouraged and children are welcome as we make shared art works and develop personal connections while discussing issues of interest. Guiding topics include the often solitary, intermittent conditions of working from home as an artist-parent, as well as the deviation from the ‘ideal’ career-path of the art world professional that this working environment represents. The session will begin with brief introductions and move to an activity in which participants will be invited to create a visual response to a specific prompt with relevant creative constraints. This session will not be recorded to ensure the privacy and anonymity of those in attendance, but alternative forms of documentation will be discussed by the group.
