From Amateur to Professional

Instructor: Susan Abbott
Photo by Jeb Wallace-Brodeur Susan Abbott paints in her studio at her home in Marshfield.

This intensive workshop demystifies the business side of being a professional artist. Students learn about building a resume, approaching galleries, organizing shows, coping with rejection, slides, publicity, marketing, taxes, and many other topics. Each participant receives a booklet of worksheets and information prior to the online class. Students rave about this class.

“In one day, Susan told me all the highlights of all the unread art business books sitting on the floor of my studio. This should be a required course for all BFA students and aspiring artists!”

The instruction is presented via Zoom.
