Social Marketing for Artists How you can increase your art sales, increase enrollment in your workshops, and connect with people who would love to collect your work!

Never has the small business owner (you the Artist!) had such a wonderful tool - the Internet and Social Media! You have the power at your fingertips on your keyboard to connect with people all over the country and even the world, who are interested in your Art.

Find out how you can use the power of the Internet to help you be a flourishing Artist by using tools like Facebook (not the way you are probably using FB) website, blog, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube. There are ways for you to use two or all four to expand your Art to a larger audience and increase your sales.

WORKSHOP: Skeletons in the Watercolor Closet with KATHERINE WRIGHT. Aug 6, 2016. 10am-4:30pm

SKELETONS in the WATERCOLOR CLOSET or
"Can This Watercolor Painting Be Saved?"

with KATHERINE WRIGHT

1-DAY WORKSHOP!
Saturday, August 6, 2016
10:30 am - 4:30 pm
Register at 206-223-9599

FREE DEMO!
Sunday, July 17, 2016
11:00 am - 12:30 pm

We all have sad, unhappy, unfinished watercolors at the bottom of the pile, stored away, waiting to be rescued. These paintings that never satisfied us can be a great resource for learning, experimenting, or risking a new technique.

For the demo, participants are encouraged to bring an unhappy work. A few will be selected to show how you can use "bad" paintings to expand your creativity and end up with art works that satisfy you and interest the viewer!

While living and painting watercolors in Italy, Katherine had to make due with fewer materials, and started reusing old works . Experience this free demonstration as Katherine shares informal techniques to rework, sample, play with and use old works for new adventures . We’ll work with various mediums and collage.

This will be very entertaining; you are invited to bring an old work or two and follow along. There will be time at the end for questions.
