Business Tips for Artists and Crafters
Learn how to intertwine your creativity with the world of business. Regardless of your medium - visual, music, dance, film, or literary - 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. Your presenter has been a freelance writer for over 30 years and is the author of three books, and is currently working on a fourth literary project. She will share her knowledge of how she applied her business experiences to the world of art with measurable success. Join us to explore: The importance of setting goals How to create a business plan How to evaluate your market opportunities The basics of financial statements and record-keeping Working with galleries, agents, and other third parties
