Professional Practice Series | April • The Business of Being an Artist • Fri, Apr 29 6-9pm

  PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES SERIES •  THE BUSINESS OF BEING AN ARTIST

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES SERIES • THE BUSINESS OF BEING AN ARTIST

INSTRUCTOR: GLEN KESSLER

Being an artist means that you run your own little (hopefully growing) business. Like any business on the rise, you will need a CEO, a CFO, a CTO, PR department, a sales team, and of course a manufacturing plant. These are of course all YOU. But most artists don't address any of the first 5 departments' needs, operating rather as a manufacturing plant only. And like any business that only produced products with no sales team, PR department, or other officials charting the course of this enterprise, they often end up with a warehouse full of unsold goods. Go figure. ;)

This lecture shines a light on simple steps you can take to develop your 'whole business' as an artist.

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES SERIES • INSIDE THE PAINTER'S STUDIO

INSTRUCTOR: GLEN KESSLER

Simply put, you are invited into Glen's studio to watch him produce a painting. He will lecture and answer audience questions as he goes through his normal painting process. There are no secrets here as you will see Glen draw, mix color, apply paint, and develop the painting throughout the evening. This is sure to be of great benefit to regular students of Glen's who will happily observe him 'practicing what he preaches.'
