Workshops/Lectures

This page includes a listing of local (and some national) professional development workshops open to artists, educators, and organizations. Most of these notices are listed according to start date, although some workshops are spread over a period of time so it’s best to peruse the entire list. To submit a listing for RACC’s consideration, please email a short description of your workshop including dates, contact information and links, to mbauer@racc.org. We do not upload PDFs or other files with these notices, rather we post abbreviated listings with links to your site.

In addition, RACC offers its own workshops from time to time, including a workshop series for individual artists from January-June of each year. For a complete list of current RACC workshops, click here.

RACC's 2014 Artists Workshop Series is now open for registration.
