Upcoming Artist Entrepreneurial Workshops:
MARCH WORKSHOP POSTPONED:
Your Portfolio, Your Market
Originally scheduled for: March 20, 2013, 10am – 12noon
NEW DATE: Tuesday, May 14, 2013 (same time and place)
Presenter: Sonja Hakala
With the proliferation of on-line self-publishing companies artists are now able to create multiple copies of their portfolio for varying purposes, including submission for competitions or general marketing. However, it is possible to lose sight of the end goal while concentrating on the creative aspects of the project. This workshop covers two main subject areas: the uses of portfolio in marketing work and some of the routes one can take to publishing a portfolio. Sonja Hakala is the author of “Your Book, Your Way” and three books on quilting.
Public Art: Community, Participation & Commerce
April 10, 2013 , 11:30am – 1:00pm: Presenter: Adam Blue, Education Director, AVA Gallery and Art Center
Location: Kimball Jenkins Art School, Concord
To some, public art still conjures up monumental sculptures surrounded by park benches. Yet current public art practices have evolved into a more inclusive participatory experience—where art is made of, by, and for the people. Theses works might be found anywhere, are often impermanent, and are frequently presented to the community for free. Adam Blue, Education Director at AVA Gallery and Art Center in Lebanon, NH will present five past projects and recent work.
Your Book, Your Way
April 25, 2013, 9am – 12noon: Presenter: Sonja Hakala
Location: Concord Campus of Plymouth State University, 2 Pillsbury Street, 5th Floor, Concord
Producing a manuscript is only the first step in the book process; next you have to consider the issues of agents and editors and contracts. In the past all books went through a publishing house, now there are numerous on-line options. Sonja Hakala, author of “Your Book, Your Way,” will guide workshop participants through the many facets of publishing.
Stay tuned for futher workshop listings to be announced.
