Moving From the Outside In… Negotiating My Journey
with Elsa Robinson

Register on Eventbrite

Elsa Robinson will share her journey as an artist, starting with her decision to become one! From building a portfolio and learning about the art community in Edmonton, Elsa shares her knowledge on topics including establishing a studio practice, networking in the arts community, education, grant selection and grant writing, aspects of managing an art business, and resources in the arts community.

Elsa Robinson is a Jamaican-Canadian multi-media artist and art educator. Elsa’s artistic expression uses painting, collage, textile art, installation art, poetry, dance, and acting to ‘speak’ to audiences from her cultural inheritance as a woman of African ancestry. Her decades-long devotion to artistic practice has imbued her work with vibrancy, versatility and an intuitive spiritual poignancy through which she transmits her deep love and care for humanity.

At the start of her art career, Elsa worked as a self-taught artist. Recognizing the value of extending both her art making skills, her understanding of her own art and her place in art history, Elsa invested in her art education and now holds the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Art and Design from the University of Alberta and the degree of Master of Fine Arts from the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Elsa is a passionate arts educator who facilitates workshops for artists of all ages and experience levels.  Artist website
