About the Artbiz Workshop:

 

You know you have talent, and produce good work, but may face social exclusion or other barriers in exhibiting and selling. This workshop will discuss many of the practical things that new, emerging and outsider artists have to think about when establishing an art practice.  Topics will include getting a studio, recording inventory, essential documents, websites and social media, public exhibitions, pricing & commercial galleries.  By the end of the workshop, attendees will have some idea of the type of the things that are expected of any serious artist, and how to respond in a positive manner.
