WTSP 2016 – Understanding the Business of Art

Venue: 1131 Mission Street

Understanding the Business of Art

How do artists begin to think of their work in terms of a sustainable business model? How do artists get over their discomfort with marketing themselves? How do artists secure financial support for their art? These are questions that most artists shy away from as they wait on the sidelines hoping to be discovered, which in itself is a myth. By understanding basic artist business practices, you will begin to see your artwork as a means of empowerment. During this workshop artists will be introduced to concepts such as creative goal-setting, strategic planning, marketing and self-promotion, money management, and legal issues. Artists will walk away from the workshop with a new introductory set of skills and new view of their creative labor.
