Excitement, energy, and engagement around the new California Blueprint for Creative Schools
Keynote speakers, workshop sessions, and provocative conversations focused on an education vision with the arts and creativity at its center.
Led by artist Sharon Louden, this four-part webinar series is geared to visual artists yearning for guidance on how best to approach and communicate with the gatekeepers of the art world: galleries, curators, collectors, museum professionals, and more. The webinar will address the following questions: How does an artist approach a gallery cold? How does an artist communicate with a gallerist, curator, museum professional, etc.? What are the best ways to correspond and to start up a relationship and maintain it? When is the best time to approach the person? How often should an artist be in contact? How does one follow up on an inquiry? What is the proper way to pace a professional conversation?
Register for this four-part series by Monday, January 12 and receive the entire series for a discounted rate of $80! Or register for individual sessions at $25 a piece.
