What does a strong work sample look like? How can sequencing, editing, and properly sizing your images make your work sample stronger? How much does the quality of your work sample affect the overall quality of an application? 

Join OCI Program Manager, Peter Fankhauser at OCI's new space (1419 South 13th, Suite 103) to learn more about what selection panels look for when reviewing work samples included with applications for grants, residencies, grad programs, and open call exhibition opportunities. 

**Please bring 5 images of recent work on a flash drive or external hard drive with you, if you plan to attend.** 

WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the professional aspects of their creative practice. Each month is devoted to one topic. Expert community partners will lead a main learning session, followed by a hands-on, collaborative workshop later in the month. 

Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.

Every session/workshop is free and open to the public. OCI cannot offer childcare services, but parents you are more than welcome to bring your children if childcare is not available to you. 

The WAW Series is sponsored in part by the Iowa West Foundation.
