HOW TO GET INTO BUSINESS OF ART
The cohort will be selected on the basis of their readiness to successfully launch their creative business and will not be judged on the aesthetics of their work.
Cohort members should be able to attend all presentations and cohort sessions; check the schedule below before applying.
Potential cohort members should be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:
Do you have a cohesive and professional body of work?
Have you made serious effort to sell your work in the past through multiple channels?
Do you have a professional quality online presence including website and social media?
Applications for the 2020 session will open up in September 2020.
Presentations and panel discussions are open to the public. Cohort sessions are open only to those accepted into the Business of Art Cohort.
Please join us to celebrate the completion of Business of Art (and to do some holiday shopping) at our annual maker market, the Holiday Humbug, where each cohort member will sell their art!
