Artists in Action: Artist Self-Promotion Tools

Artist self-promotion tools: resumes, bios and statements. Don’t know where to start? Hard to talk about yourself?

Learn the fundamental “business” approach of communicating about you and your art. Then…learn different “artistic” ways you can get your point across to Collectors, Galleries and others in the art trade.

Bob and Kate will show samples and examples of these essential “bones” that make up your self promotion tools. They will share different uses for these tools - from their own experience.

During this 90-minute webinar, you will learn:

  • Why and how do I make a resume?
  • What do I include in a resume?
  • Artist biography or autobiography?
  • What’s the difference between a bio and an artist statement?

This is important information you need to know to advance your career as an artist!
