Professional Artists Series at Danforth Art

(Memory Rooms, Mark Lang)

This week marks the start of the Fall 2013 Professional Artists Series at Danforth Art in Framingham. The classes are designed to help you better navigate the art world, enhance your career, and add new skills to your toolkit. And not like, “learn how to make a felt sculpture of your pet” skills, but information on contracts and copyrights, branding and promotion, hosting an effective open studios, creating a coherent artist statement, etc etc.

Added bonus: As a part of the winter session, myself and some other critically acclaimed arts bloggers will be headlining the Power of Blogging” panel on January 16th where will be talking about the voodoo that we do and how you too can harness the power of the world wide web. It will be fun, so come say hello and ask loads of questions.
