Penland workshops cover professional development for artists

Written by 

Penland School of Crafts will host a professional development workshop for artists living in Western North Carolina from Oct. 1 to 3.

The workshops will be taught by the nonprofit group Creative Capital and is geared for all artists who would like to earn their living from their art or would like to take their art-based career to a new level of professionalism.

The weekend workshop is an intensive two-and-a-half-day crash course in self-management, strategic planning, fundraising, and promotion, including lectures, peer critiques, one-on-one consultations, interactive exercises, and written assignments. Participants will be given a workbook as well as handouts with practical how-to information, and they will meet with leaders in small groups.

The workshop is open to artists living in the following Western North Carolina counties; Ashe, Avery, Buncombe, Burke, Caldwell, Cherokee, Clay, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Swain, Transylvania, Watauga, and Yancey.

Applicants will be asked to submit a resume, a letter of interest, and photographs of their work. Tuition for the workshop, which takes place on the Penland campus in Mitchell County, is $50. Housing and meals are available at additional cost. Applications due Aug. 16.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
