GET SERIOUS AND ORGANIZED ABOUT YOUR ART CAREER
BayVAN, along with artist and art career coach Michele Pred will present a series of workshops on promotion, marketing and development for artists who are ready to take the next step in their careers. These workshops have been designed to give you the foundation you need to present yourself as a professional artist, increase visibility and boost sales. You will come out of these workshops with a better understanding of how to harness your portfolio and newly acquired skills in marketing to approach galleries, apply to open calls and seek funding.
Interested in presenting your work through galleries, exhibitions or other venues? This workshop will focus on developing your artist statement, resume and bio.
Michele Pred will help you develop and/or fine tune these necessary tools. Whether you are an emerging or mid-career artist, this workshop will support your growth as an exhibiting artist.
