Some of you may or may not know, I am currently a participant in a Professional Development Seminar for artists called Artist, Inc., a collaboration between the Metro Arts Council, The Charlotte Street Foundation, and partially funded through Link. It’s an eight week seminar and I go every Monday night. Last night was the second night.
To artists: I already can’t recommend it enough. It’s 2/3 subsidized, so you do have to pay a fee. There’s also a good deal of “homework.” But totally worth it. Feel free to ask me more questions any time.
To everyone else: This kind of program is exactly what serious artists need. If you want to support local artists in other ways that purchasing art, supporting organizations like The Arts Council, Charlotte Street, and the Artists Coalition are a great place to look. The people at these organizations are incredibly dedicated and the programs they create and offer bring concrete value to the arts community in KC.
Ok, now down to the farm with me to install some doors! I got the frames built and doors trimmed last week. Here’s hoping I lay the smack down.
