Class Description: This workshop will explore the many aspects of marketing, public relations, and business trends so that ultimately the student will leave with a customized marketing plan. An informal approach will include worksheets and information sheets which will assist any level artist during this difficult economic time. Discussions will deal with galleries, publishers, printing reproductions, advertising, public relations, websites, current trends in this market, pricing your work, and much more. Students should bring their questions and a couple of examples of their own art work for review as well as samples of their own marketing pieces.
