Description

Art & Business: How to build your career as an artist

When you’re starting out on the journey to becoming a fine artist it’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day activities without knowing how to create a system for success. Many artists focus on creating the content but don’t have time or the opportunity to learn the basics of marketing, personal branding, pricing, exhibiting, etc.

On November 25th we’ll sit down amongst an array of some fine artwork and chat with Harjot Ghuman and Russna Kaur about their experiences and tips on how to build a career as a fine artist.

Who is this event for?

  • anyone who is interested in or study's art
  • anyone who is currently pursuing a career as a visual or fine artist.
  • anyone who is a self-taught artist; or
  • anyone interested in making money by becoming a professional visual artist
