Business Workshop for Visual Artists

Gabrielle Tesfaye
Sustainability and Wellness
Thursday, January 24 - 1pm-3:30pm
Thunderbird

Although the world may love to imagine the life of an artist is nothing but painting lovely pictures in a spacious studio all day without a worry in the world, we know that is far from the truth!

This presentation will be for artists who are seeking direction and insight into the “how to’s” of the other-side of being an artist- business! We will talk about social media presence, website organization, writing artist bio’s/statements, grant writing, portfolios, selling art, and more.

The workshop also aims to shatter the fear based illusion of business for artists, and transcend into a confidence of deeper connection and mastery in our crafts.

(This presentation is open to all but will be of best use to visually based artists.)
