The Flagstaff Arts Council is pleased to announce that the application for participation in the 2016 session of the ArtBox Institute is now open. ArtBox provides business training and professional development to artists, aspiring artists, and creatives who are or want to work in the art field.
The ArtBox Institute’s curriculum is built to provide training in the business side of the arts for artists, creatives, and professionals in the creative field. Students can be at any level or stage of their career: just getting started, mid-career, decades of experience but looking for a jolt, etc. ArtBox is perfect for artists (any genre), staff and board of arts organizations, gallery owners, performers, and anyone who aspires to success in any of these areas.
ArtBox provides a curriculum that gives artists and professionals the tools to succeed in the marketplace. Sessions cover marketing, branding, gallery representation, writing for artist statements, social media, finances, legal issues for artists, insurance, pricing, grant writing, fund raising and more.
The 2016 ArtBox Institute will take place from mid-January to mid-May 2016 in Flagstaff. The class begins with a weekend retreat January 16-17 and then meets weekly.
