    NEW! Practical and Professional Development for Creatives
    This course will teach you what you need to know to brand, market, and sell yourself as a creative professional. We will learn how to write an artist statement, biography, and resume. We will develop a portfolio that can be submitted to galleries, schools, artist residency applications, competitions, social media, and to potential employers and patrons. Once we have created a resume, biography, and portfolio, we will then learn how to create a website using free/low cost platforms and market on social media. Finally, we will learn the practical business side of selling art- pricing, sales and licensing contracts, display agreements, and much more. This class is designed for both students and seasoned artists.
     
    Part 1: Branding, marketing, and website creation
    We will work on defining you as a creative professional. Things we will consider in this class include-the medium we create with, where we find inspiration, and what makes our style unique. Learn how to create a website using free or inexpensive platforms as well as a presence on social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Google +, and YouTube.
     
    Part 2: Portfolio development, gallery submission, pricing and selling
    We will work on streamlining your portfolio so that it is marketable to galleries, schools, artist residency applications, competitions, social media, and to potential employers and patrons. You will learn how to select a body of work that best represents you, create themes within your portfolio, write a resume and create a visual resume. We will discuss how to price our work, and other ways to optimize the salability of our work.

  2.  NEW! Bending Reality: Working with Color Schemes and Strategies

    NEW! Bending Reality: Working with Color Schemes and Strategies

    $130.00

    Do you have a color "strategy" before you start a painting, or do you simply hope the color will work out in the end? Have you ever wished you had more freedom with color? 

    Color is one of the most important elements in the success of your painting.  Many painters feel bound by the colors they see, which can lead to predictable paintings that lack drama, no matter how well they are painted. It's important to learn how to harness the power of color and use it to communicate your artistic vision.

    In this workshop, learn how "less is more" in your palette for good color harmony, and learn to work with the colors of your choice.

     Patti Mollica, author of "Color Theory, an Essential Guide to Color" will be teaching the strategy behind working with color schemes and pushing color choices to the next level. If you are ready to embark upon new level of color exploration, don't miss this workshop!

    Suitable for all levels and media - acrylic, oils, pastel, watercolor, etc. A minimum enrollment of 10 is needed to run the workshop. A materials list will be sent upon registration.
