How to Be a Profitable Artist
How to Be a Profitable Artist shows you how to intertwine your creativity with the world of business. Regardless of your medium – visual, literary, music, dance, or film – this program gives you the tools to bridge the gap between what you already know about how to find clients and produce saleable art and what you need to know to operate the business side of your studio successfully. Annette Dunlap, MBA, has been a freelance writer for over 30 years and is the author of three books. She is currently working on her fourth literary project. She will share her knowledge of how she applied her business experiences to the world of art with measurable success.
