FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Fairfield University is set to host a career development workshop for Connecticut artists this week.
The university will host "Pricing & Presenting Your Artwork" as part of the Make.Art.Work., Career Strategies for Visual Artists program at 6 p.m. Jan. 15.
Silvermine Arts Center’s Gallery Director Jeffrey Mueller will lead the workshop. Mueller is set to give artists the opportunity to explore essential business skills by walking artists through the process of pricing and presenting work, in a step-by-step method that "demystifies these often challenging subjects," according to a release.
"Participants will learn the necessary questions to consider that are essential components to their success as self-employed artists," representatives said in the release. "A variety of financial formulas will also be introduced which can help artists price their work."
Make.Art.Work. Project Manager Jeannie Thomma will offer a look at how to present on paper and develop effective artist statements and resumes.
The MAKE.ART.WORK. program is presented by the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County, and Greater Hartford Arts Council, with support from the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation. Those who are interested in the workshop are asked to contact David Green, David@culturalalliancefc.or or Jeannie Thomma, Jeannie@makeartwork.org.
