Wyoming Arts Council

Calling all artrepreneurs!


From Wyoming Entrepreneur/Small Business Development Center:

Are you an artist, serious about taking the next step in your career?  If so, do not miss this opportunity to learn how to effectively market your skills and products.  If you are an artist, craftsperson, musician, writer, dancer, singer, or involved in another creative endeavor, setting promotional objectives will help increase sales of either your talents or your work.  Six online classes will take place from 12 -1:00 pm, on Thursdays from Jan. 16 through Feb. 20.  In addition to receiving a free copy of the book, Art Sales & Marketing:  Affordable Solutions for Creative Self-Marketing, students will have the opportunity to discuss assignments and work individually with the instructor and other staff members during the week.

Due to a grant awarded to the Small Business Development Center from the Small Business Jobs Act, there will be no charge to participants in this program.  The webinars will be recorded for future viewing by participants.

Topics to be covered include planning, statement and identity, photographing your work, creating a portfolio, elements of publicity and putting these elements together.  Chuck Egnaczak will teach the class.  He has taught marketing, art and design, in addition to over 30 years as a professional designer, photographer, illustrator and marketing specialist.  This course will enable artists to make their work more visible and increase sales.

Although there is no charge for the classes, participants must register at http://wyen.biz in order to receive the link to the class.  For further information, contact Cindy Unger, cindyu@uwyo.edu or 307-234-6683.

Reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested at least 2 weeks in advance.  Contact the SBDC at 234-6683 to obtain further information.
