Updated: Jun 18

Maximizing Your Performance or Workshop Experience

Hello, trailblazing artists and educators! 🌟 As we come together under the noble mission of Art is Power, we want to ensure that your collaboration is as smooth, empowering, and impactful as possible. This guide will elucidate the compensation process, workshop design, and the technical support at your disposal.

🔸 Payment Platforms: Ensuring a streamlined compensation method for our contributors is a priority.

  • Venmo: Instantly send your payment request to our handle @NatureofSound.

  • PayPal: Draft an invoice and forward it to We'll process it pronto!

🔸 Setting the Compensation Benchmark: Everyone starts with a 3-hour compensation structure. If your workshop or preparations warrant more hours, open a dialogue with us. Compensation typically caps at $500, but with clear communication, we can navigate exceptions.

🔸 Traditional Payment Avenues: If you're leaning towards checks or other conventional payment methods, that's fine by us. Just be ready with an independent contractor W9 form. Your ease and compliance are our watchwords. 📄✍️

🔸 Workshop Blueprint:

  • Narrating Your Odyssey: Kickstart your workshop by sharing your journey. Detail your metamorphosis as an artist, the hurdles, and the resilience that shaped you. Your tale can light up another's path.

  • Challenge Frameworks: Offer students two prisms:

    1. Inward: Propel them to introspect, leveraging their artistic prowess for personal growth.

    2. Outward: Motivate them to utilize their craft as a beacon for societal change and enrichment.

While these challenges are optional, they lend direction and purpose to budding artists.

  • Channeling Emotion: Encourage your participants to tap into their deep-seated emotions. Whether it's the peaks of sobriety or the valleys of grief, their art can mirror their truth.

🔸 Previous Workshops - A Beacon of Inspiration: To truly grasp the depth, creativity, and impact of our workshops, we highly recommend diving into some of our past sessions. Not only do they showcase the range of artistic disciplines we've explored, but they also emphasize the myriad ways in which presenters have connected with and inspired our audiences.

For instance:

  • Jesse Hill shared a deeply personal journey in the world of gaming and esports, demonstrating that a workshop can be as much about the artist's story as about the art form itself. His narrative emphasized the life choices he made, driven by his passion, which kept him away from alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Watch Jesse's Workshop

  • Zach Young took a playful and interactive approach to his comic art workshop. Beyond discussing the intricacies of creating a graphic novel, he led an engaging activity where audience members tried their hand at drawing without looking - a fun challenge that was both entertaining and instructive.

Our archives are a treasure trove of creativity, resilience, and passion. Whether you're keen on presenting a personal story, a hands-on activity, or a combination of both, our past workshops can offer valuable insights and inspiration. We encourage you to explore more of these sessions.

Remember, "Art is Power," means every story matters. Every talent shines. And every workshop has the potential to ignite a passion in our young audience, leading them on their own journey of discovery and empowerment.

🔸 Technical Mastery: Embrace the magic of our virtual production studio! While we remunerate you to spotlight your journey, we're committed to magnifying your story to its fullest potential. And for that, we pull out all the stops.

  • Onsite Technical Support: Our dedication transcends the digital realm. If you're within a feasible mile radius, our adept team will be at your location, optimizing the technical aspects to ensure your art and narrative are portrayed flawlessly.

  • Virtual Tech Brilliance: With platforms like Zoom as our stage, and backed by a robust technical framework, we're always on standby to support and elevate your presentation. This initiative is harmoniously orchestrated in partnership with the Solano Office of Education. We handle the intricacies of the technical sessions so you can focus solely on your craft.
