The Thriving Artist Workshop with Antoinette Cauley @ Coconino Center for the Arts
Oct 28 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Thriving Artist Series was developed by Phoenix based visual artist Antoinette Cauley as a tool for artists looking to go from working full time corporate jobs to becoming a full time working artist. The series gives a well rounded understanding of what it takes to run a successful art business and maintain a steady income independently as an artist.

Part One: Taking the Leap & Making a Plan During this workshop, Antoinette will share her story of working a full time job to quitting and launching a full time art career and being named Best Local Artist by Arizona Foothills Magazine. She will take you through building her brand and the steps she took and provide resources that help gain her independence as an artist. Some of the topics include how to transition from a 9-5 to running a business, building a network and overcoming doubt and fear.

Part Two: Merchandising & Generating Revenue – This workshop will cover effective branding tools and how to turn artwork into sellable merchandise. Antoinette will cover selling techniques as well as provide resources for local merchandise production companies. This portion will also cover several creative ways to generate multiple revenue streams as an independent artist. Often artists feel the only way to make money is through selling their original artwork. There are actually so many untapped avenues for artists to gain capitol. Antoinette will go into detail on how to find these different avenues and secure consistent income through these revenue streams.

This workshop is designed to be interactive and for artists to be able to ask questions throughout the presentation.

About Antoinette Cauley

From an early age, Antoinette found comfort and security in her set of pencils and sketch pad. Art seemed to be the only thing that ever made sense to Antoinette. Her ability to create art was the only real sense of stability she found as a youth. She knew that she had been given a special gift to create and that one day she could use it to change lives.

Being a Phoenix native, Antoinette’s work is very reflective of her city- the gritty and the beautiful. Her work is heavily influenced by rap music and hip hop culture with a focus on social injustice and politics. Currently Antoinette works as a full time artist in her studio in Phoenix, Arizona. She also works with youth ages 5-18, teaching art classes that focus on drawing, painting and color theory.

Antoinette was named the 2017 Best Local Artist by the AZ Foothills Magazine.  She developed The Thriving Artist Series to help artists of all mediums understand the business aspects of being a professional working artist. The workshop is open to artists of all skill level and backgrounds. As a full time working artist, Antoinette brings a wealth of knowledge that can inspire and aid any artist along their artistic journey.

Accelerate Your Nonprofit Workshop @ Coconino Center for the Arts
Oct 26 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

The Rayvan Group, based out of Phoenix, AZ, invites you to the Accelerate Your Non-Profit with their signature workshop. In this full-day event, they will help your organization design (or redesign) funding strategies to do more than keep your doors open.

Rayvan Group only works with nonprofits and as a result understand that as the Founder, CEO, President or Executive Director, you’re busy and attending a daylong workshop might not seem like the best use of your time. This event will address some of the biggest challenges facing your nonprofit:

  1. Creating a diverse funding strategy. Funding is the foundation for success in a nonprofit. It’s almost impossible to deliver programs with real impact and develop strong leaders without proper funding.
  2. Finding and keeping the right people. Your organization lives or dies on the strength of the people involved, staff and board members. How do you attract the right people? And once you have them, keep them for long term?
  3. Communicating results. New and current donors want to see how you’re spending their money and more importantly the impact you’re making.

 

Do you have an idea for a new program? Or are you searching for a clearer direction and a plan to take your nonprofit to the next level? Whether you’re wanting to design a new program, attract more donors, new board members, improve your marketing, create a new fundraising event, generate new revenue streams, or build a rock star team to support you, the Accelerate Nonprofit workroom is where it begins!

Do’s and Don’ts of Nonprofit Board Development (two-part series) @ Coconino Center for the Arts
Mar 30 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

TWO-DAY Workshop
Sat, March 30 & Sun, March 31 | 9am-12:30pm

The board of directors of a nonprofit organization is the ultimate governing body of the group. Individually and collectively, the board is responsible for financial oversight, providing leadership and direction, being transparent and accountable to its stakeholders, and protecting its legal liability.

It’s rare to discover a board member of a nonprofit that has strong expertise in all areas of board duties. Nearly every board member will benefit by developing knowledge in each of these areas.

REGISTER NOW

 

These two half-day workshops led by Jarrett Ransom will cover:

  • Recruiting New Board Members
  • Onboarding and Training
  • Keeping Your Board Engaged
  • Evaluating of Board Members
  • Firing a Board Member
  • Fundraising for Boards

Jarrett Ransom has more than 15 years of international and national experience in nonprofit management. In 2009 she created the Rayvan Group, a nonprofit consulting firm focusing on sustainable practices for nonprofits worldwide. Their specialities include strategic visioning, fund and board development, donor stewardship, client and corporate relations, special events, and grant writing.

There is no denying Jarrett’s passion about empowering others and supporting mission-driven organizations that benefit their community.
