How wonderful, Sharon. You must have applied under the ArtsyShark program, because ours is still running.

Honestly, you can never learn too much and these workshops are so strategically helpful.

I attended last year (it was my Winter vacation -- a busman's holiday) and had a great time, but this winter planning something a little more exotic.

This is such a great opportunity for someone (especially someone who lives near to Philly). You will not only learn strategic info about how to run an artist's business you can also attend the Buyers Market and see how others put these lessons into practice.
