Art Meets Business hopes to “bust the myth” of the starving artist by helping creative entrepreneurs become more successful. Research shows that the most successful entrepreneurs are those who have a firm grasp of basic business skills. AMB offers access to business resources and information on marketing, pricing, negotiating, using social networking sites, customer relations, working with galleries, record-keeping, contracts, and many other issues that affect the success of artists.
This program was made possible by a faculty grant from the WCC Foundation.Register Here!
