Portfolio Building Workshops
Our artist workshop program consists of a series of workshops which artists can join to create new portfolio work based on a brief that is provided each month. The briefs contain information about the marketplace, design practices, as well as a topic to center the work around. Your submissions are available for the public to view in our class galleries (New in 2021!). An example of a public workshop submission gallery can be seen here.
Monthly Look-Book Collections
For those who are looking for a hand in having their work shown to potential clients, we offer a plans which provide various levels of marketing and representation as well as individual consulting and coaching.
Each month, we select work submitted by our Discovery+ members and create a Look-Book with a theme, post it on our ALPS website, and send newsletters to our client list.

Discovery+ members have access to a public artist profile page which includes a photo, short bio and a gallery of portfolio images from workshop submissions.
Mentorship members have additional private gallery sections which can be shared with specific clients.
