This schedule has changed. — September 25, 2012


If you would like to help lead one of these workshops, it would be great to have workshop co-hosts with expertise in the particular subject matter or medium, which is the focus of a particular workshop. Please contact Elizabeth Bravo or me in advance. Thank you.

The Watercolor, Holiday, and Mr. Squiggle workshops will be held during the Solo hosts’ “winter hiatus”. So we will depend on others to lead these workshops!

Please pass this link around to your friends inside and outside of Solo and encourage them to watch this topic for links and join the workshops! Thank you.

We will be announcing the solo schedule soon, too.

Indeed, Beatrice. I hope you like the idea of knowing in advance.
I figure it’s at least mental prep time. :)

Will future workshops allow two or three ( or more) traditional translations of the same image (like in SoJie 15)?

Earlier in Sojie 15 you mentioned that traditional artists were not so keen on having their work translated, but I notice the T in the catalogue…does that mean you hope some won’t mind having their work translated or just a change of policy?..

It is good to have the info ahead of time.
Couple of questions (hope it’s ok to post them here)
Is landscape going to include seascapes? cityscapes?
For November – does “Watercolor” refer to the translation only and the catalog will be free subject?

Perhaps at some stage you can also mention if there will be awards associated with the workshop and translation process, or just for the exhibition itself.
Thank you!

Oh my goodness, you all have really made my day, responding to this. Several likes on Facebook too.

How wonderful!

Let me try to answer questions here, as they come.

Q: @Nici, offered to help co-host a painting workshop.
A: I would be delighted for you to co-host a painter’s workshop. Stay in touch with us on this. Thank you!

Q: @Lana asked about multiple translations of a work in the catalog.
A: Yes, multiple translations will stay.

I like this policy, because artists have different styles. This leaves it as a decision (first) for the artist extending the request, since in most cases, they will know if someone else is making a translation; and, also, (second) by the creator of the originating work, who may only want a single translation (and thus decline the 2nd request), or may decide that the styles are not enough at variance, between the artist, or may love for the work to have these distinct translations.

That way, Solo remains a guide in the process, but leaves the translation, where it should be, as an agreement between individual creators.

Q: @Janis wonders if the “T” for traditional works in the catalog column represents a change in the policy currently in play at the SoJie 15 workshop.
A: Catalog works, ultimately, will continue to be by invitation, but for those workshops listed, yes, we will invite more traditional works along the theme.

I am hoping that this preview post gives some time for all to consider this question, and time to review pieces that would compliment the catalog of a particular workshop, without being pressured by short notice and the concerns that can easily go along with that.

Q: @ArtPearl asked if “landscapes” (the next workshop) might include seascapes and cityscapes.
A: At this point, I would say no. That is because I’d love to have future workshops devoted to those themes.

Q: @ArtPearl asked if the watercolor theme, for Nov., is intended to mean that translations, only, are watercolor.
A: Yes, only the translations.

The focus of the workshop will be to translate the catalog images into watercolor (only). The catalog will have a mix of Photographic and Digital works, on various subjects.

Q: @ArtPearl asked if there will be awards associated with the workshop and translation process or just for the exhibition itself.
A: At this time, we plan on only the medium category awards at the exhibitions, as in SoJie 1 through 11; since the exhibitions will be loosely associated with the workshops.

SoJie’s 12 – 14 were tightly coupled to the workshops. Only workshop participants were included in those exhibitions; so special categories were created for those three SoJie’s.

This does not preclude the workshop, itself, from having “choice” awards from participants. Those awards, if any, simply will not be presented during the SoJie Exhibition award ceremony.
