The Business of Art Franklin County at 11/30 Visitors Center
Saturday October 22nd, 2022 * 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Working as an artist can be isolating. It is important to connect with other artists, makers and arts organizations to create a sense of community.
This one-day conference will give you opportunities to learn and grow.
Art is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration. This conference provides the inspiration you need to move your artistic life to the next level—whatever that means to you.
Practical & Useful Knowledge
Your creative journey can grow into a business with knowledge and expertise. This conference will help you add practical knowledge to your creative toolbox.
Artist block can be a debilitating inhibitor to your creative journey. Sometimes all it takes is immersing yourself in a refreshing environment to kick your creative self into high gear. To quote Picasso, “Inspiration must find you working.”
