Ann Klefstad

Mid-Career Professional Development Grantee | $5,000

Next-level Presentation skills

Ann Klefstad will develop her knowledge of digital presentation and production techniques for public art opportunities. She will purchase the software SketchUp Pro (for 3D modeling) and Scan2CAD (for production of CAD files from drawings) and spend 150 hours learning and practicing the software. She hopes this will make her far more competitive in the digital presentation and production arena.
