Innovation in the Creation of Workshops

Workshops at the New York Public Library before the Coronavirus.

One of my favorite Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes is:

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is something that we have always strived for. When working with students we not only teach them through workshops skills that are used in the real world, but we also make it a priority to encourage them to be creative in the seeking of new ideas.

US Make a Difference

Many say that nothing is new, which to a certain degree may be true, but it is only through the work of innovators that new ways of doing things comes true. Some of the students we have taught in the past went on to win Platinum PIAs Awards, now called “US Make a Difference” Awards.”

Innovation

We do not have as many workshops as we used to, and many of them are online, but we continue to push forward with the hope that our students go on to do what they really want to do and innovate along the way!

Getting Ready for the Platinum PIAs in the Cloud

This is going to be very brief. Yes we know, we haven’t been updating this blog as often as we may like, but it’s not like we haven’t been very busy. We’ve joined forces with ArtisticPreneur.com to organize the 10th Annual Platinum PIAs Community Awards Show in the cloud. If you don’t know about ArtisticPreneur is all about you should really check them out. For one thing they are much better than we are when it comes to updating their blog as seen here. Also, they are a very interesting organization. They study the intersection of a person being both “Artistic” and “Entrepreneurial” at the same time or in other words being an “ArtisticPreneur.” Yes we realize that there is nothing new about mentioning the concept of being an ArtisticPreneur, at least not with our regular readers. But now more than ever, with the way things are going in this country, we feel it is important that any person who is interested in making her or his career in the arts, that ArtisticPreneur is a must “check it out” site. Well, that’s all for now. We did say this was going to be very brief. But we promise to come back sooner than a couple of months next time when we’ll update you on the PIAs. Goodbye and all the best!
