First of all, let's celebrate the very existence of a thing called Lawn School. Brought to you by NUTUREArt, this free, outdoor education series features classes by artists, for artists, covering topics from how emerging creative folk should interact with the marketplace, to fun, easy things like nail art. In addition to the content itself, the program lets all manner of studio-locked artists mingle and network with their (your, our) own kind. Even better, on Thursday, July 26th, they have a class that's directly after our travel-loving hearts: "DIY Round-the-World Travel for Creative Artists: From Art Squats to Pirate Radio Stations." Is that not the best mouthful you've ever heard?
Taught by installation artist Lee Tusman, the class will cover all of the nitty gritty you need to plan a globe hopping itinerary as a starving artist. The agenda will focus on how to reach out to other nations' creatives (chefs, graffiti artists, hackers, you name it) to set up work and timeshare situations, as well as how to set up a budget, find free places to sleep, and how to get your own work on a plane and out into the world at large.
