Register for 5th Workshop

The Business of Art 


What exactly is the Business of Art?  Its preparing artists to present their work in a professional manner when advancing their art career.   All workshops are free to members and $6 each for non-members.  If you know of someone who would like to attend and isn't a member please forward this information. 


We will be presenting workshops with a total of 7 workshops.  In each workshop we will have a drawing for something artfully!  In the final workshop we will hold a drawing combining all participants, times the number of workshops they attended. The winner will receive a Leather Art Presentation case to use when next they present their work for an exhibit!!!  We will try and hold these workshops in various locations to equal out the traveling for artists. 

Please register below so we can get an estimate of the number attending.
