ASC Community Partnerships hosts "No More Starving Artists" workshop and exhibit

(09-01-2010)

ASC Community Partnerships invited Allan McConnell, a Pueblo business consultant, to return to the San Luis Valley with his "No More Starving Artists" workshop, educating artists of all creative levels on furthering their careers. The workshop starts at 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., including a lunch break, on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 11 and Sept. 12, in the Adams State School of Business, room 142, in Alamosa, Colo.

The workshop will cover developing a stronger business sense, conducting successful marketing, working with galleries and contracts, legally protecting original art under copyright law, and more. This workshop has improved many local artists' business skills over the past several years. Following the workshop, ASC Community Partnerships will host the "No More Starving Artists" art exhibit in October, giving the participants a chance to practice what they learned.

The workshop cost is $125 per person, with a discount available to those who have taken the workshop before. Every participant will receive hand-outs, to take lessons home. The "No More Starving Artists" art exhibit is scheduled from October 4 through October 29, in the ASC Community Partnerships Gallery, located on the corner of Main St. and Edgemont Blvd in Alamosa, Colo.
