2018 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Gibbs Rounsavall


The challenges posed by quarantines and a stalled economy are daunting, especially for artists. In the last month, Creative Capital launched a series of free online workshops, Coping with COVID – designed to help artists mitigate the effects of the pandemic and economic situation, and above all to show that none of us are alone in this struggle.

All four workshops are available to watch online.
