Start off the year right by getting organized with Fairbanks Arts’ first workshop of 2018!
Recording and organizing your artist/artisan’s career information is crucially important, just as it is for any business person. This workshop will discuss saving your art career facts and figures, as well as multiple options for how to organize that information. We’ll also cover the important documents critical to any working artist’s career: resume, applications, and digital images. We’ll review easy approaches to organizing your information, as well as more complex systems to track a lifetime’s work. Handouts with examples and details included.
