Fieldwork is a workshop in which generative artists learn about their work, develop their ability to give critical commentary, and build a community of artistic peers. The primary goal of Fieldwork is to provide structure and support for an artist's process. Fieldwork is one of the few places where art makers of any creative discipline can develop their own craft at their own pace.


Fieldwork weekly workshop series are scheduled several times each year and may culminate in a showing of the works created and/or be connected with additional performance opportunities in the Milwaukee area and beyond. Two Fieldwork Workshop Series are scheduled for 2021:


  • March 29-June 7, 2021 (every other Monday 6:00-8:00 pm)

  • September 27-November 6 (every Monday 6:00-9:00 pm)
