Treat yourself to a day of inspiration!
Join MDPPA members Steve Clark, Cr.Photog, CPP, and Anne Looney, Cr.Photog, CPP, at the world-renowned National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC on December 11th for a refreshing day of reflection, discussion, and discovery with your colleagues.
Every generation of artists learns from and builds upon their peers and predecessors. Enhance your creativity and apply it to your business! We will consider ways of seeing, as well as enjoy free time to explore the Gallery together or as individual reflection. Bonus tour arranged with a top National Gallery lecturer Eric Denker will begin at 10:30am!
