Artist INC Application Deadline EXTENDED to Friday at 5pm!

Artist INC is a cutting edge training program that empowers artists to create opportunities and take control of their careers. By addressing the specific business needs and challenges artists of all disciplines face every day, participants learn the business skills specific to their art practice and how apply those skills cooperatively with peers. Leveraging a class design that focuses on the three major components of adult learning (mentorship, peer networks, knowledge), artists learn collectively through artist facilitator mentoring, small group application activities, as well as large group discussion and multi-media lecture in March 2017.
