The Business of Being An Artist

Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art

Learn what it takes to be an exhibiting artist. This class will go over many different topics such as artist statements, submitting work, prepping work, photographing work, marketing, and more. Many local guest artists and community representatives will frequent this class to share their real-world experience and knowledge. In partnership with The Greater Augusta Arts Council, the main meeting site for this class will be at The Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art but there will be a few dates meeting off site at local shops and galleries. Also, as a final project, students will put on their own group art exhibit and reception. Come join the fun and get ready to show your art! 

*students are asked to have some art or art images selected to bring in to share to their first week of class
