CREATE SUCCESS

The Professional Artist

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR ARTISTS

As an artist it is difficult to understand every aspect of the business of art. New technologies and procedures have altered the way artists must submit and promote their work. Transitioning from a traditional framework into a completely digital structure can be complicated and confusing, and many artists struggle with the expanding requirements of the art business today.

The Professional Artist workshops offer emerging, mid-career and experienced artists the opportunity to learn new systems and skills that will enable them to work more effectively allowing for greater personal recognition, sales opportunities and overall success as an artist.
