Springboard for the Arts will be offering the following virtual workshops on Zoom. Participation via computer is recommended, however, joining the workshop by phone is also an option if internet or computer access is a barrier.
Work of Art: Marketing
Date: Mon, Dec 5, 6:00 - 8:30 PM Central Time
Define your product, discover your target audience, make decisions about how you sell your work, and identify a budget and strategy for your artistic business.
Work of Art: Engaging Customers & Selling Your Work
Date: Mon, Dec 19, 6:00 - 8:30 PM Central Time
Learn tools and techniques to communicate the value of your work to potential customers.
