Artist INC ‚ÄčAdvance Workshop

An extension of the Artist INC Live experience, in Artist INC Advance artists and their peers work together to use the skills and concepts introduced in Artist INC Live and apply them systematically to a specific project each artist has chosen to pursue.   Over the course of ten weeks (8 class sessions + Final Presentation night), artists will focus on specific skills and apply them to the creation of an in-depth proposal for their individual projects.  The process will empower artists to take their projects to completion by creating action plans for developing, marketing, budgeting, financing and communicating the message of their projects.  Through a combination of innovative large group exercises, expert instruction and guidance, peer critiques and participation in an actual selection panel, artists will be part of a catalyzing experience furthering both their business skills and their art. The seminar culminates with artists presenting their projects at a community event and project grants awarded ($1,000 each) to three successful proposals/presentations.
