Business Workshop for Creatives

If you want to make a living creating art, you need to make money. To make money with your art, you need to sell it. Treat your Art Business like a Business and learn how to value yourself and your work. At this upcoming workshop learn how to get paid what you’re worth, avoid common mistakes, and develop a better understanding of yourself and your buyers.

“How to be an Artist and a Business Person: Professional Development for Creatives” is presented by Kevin Hallinan of Winning Inc. He’ll lead a lively discussion regarding strategies that grow business even in tough economic times. Kevin’s honesty and forthrightness, together with his ability to inspire and lead, has allowed him to coach and train artists and other non-traditional sales “rookies”, mid-level managers, and seasoned executives to new levels of success that have consistently exceeded expectations.

If you are serious about the growth of your career in art, don’t miss out on this event.
The workshop takes place at the Design Annex, 66-70 Union Square, Suite 103 in Somerville on Wednesday, May 26, 2010 with 7:00 to 7:15 pm for networking and the presentation begins at 7:15 pm. Cost is $8 for Guild members and students, $15 for others. Register before May 21 for a discount.
