Participants are heavily encouraged to bring a laptop, notebook, pricing history, CV, bio, artist statement.

This day-long program is aimed to assist emerging and established artists in creating a pathway to success.

“There’s a growing need to expose, educate, and engage artists into making their passion and talent sustainable,” said Frank Juarez. “The reality is that self-employed artists and creative entrepreneurs need to be equipped with the necessary skills to move their careers forward, evaluate progress, establish objectives, and to determine the best possible route to achieve career goals.”

Participants who complete the program will leave inspired, refreshed, and more knowledgeable about the “business of art” and how to make the most of their artwork and art business.
