AMA: Professional Development Seminar Series


AMA (Ask Me Anything): Professional Development Topics
Take a closer look at the business side of your art practice. Join Deb Schwartzkopf for projects and conversations revolving around Professional Development for Ceramic Artists. We will meet once a month for three consecutive months. Each meeting is on a Sunday from 5:30-7:00pm at Dubsea Coffee in White Center. Each session is limited to 10 participants, and your non-refundable purchase holds your space in the seminar. Each session will have a structured project and open question time at the end.  This is a time to “Ask Me Anything” and create dialogue with fellow artists around the topic.

Develop aspects of your portfolio and ask questions about the business side of making art. Facilitated conversations will encourage you to meet others and share your artwork in an engaging and informative way. Think about promotion, practice talking about your artwork, and grow your skills.
