Equally important to creating a stellar and deeply considered body of work are all the elements that surround it: your bio, project statement, website and the understanding where and how to place the work.

This workshop will help demystify the fine art market with lectures on editions and pricing to presentation and installation. It will also be an honest look at how the roadmap to success has changed and the importance of taking charge of your career is critical. Most importantly, we will craft elevated written materials to accompany your work.

The goal is to not only increase your knowledge of the fine art arena, but to present yourself and your work in a meaningful way.  Weekly assignments will be given.

This course is NOT eligible for the “Early Bird Sale” discount.

This course is strictly limited to 10 participants.
