The Watering Can’s mission is to provide assistance to artists in their professional and leadership development. Beginning in October The WC is presenting Business Basics for Artists and Creatives and a Nuts & Bolts workshop.
GROWING MY BUSINESS: Business Basics for Artists
With support of the Sioux Falls Community Foundation and The Sioux Falls Arts Council The Watering Can is offering a series of 4 classes focused on business development. The series Growing My Business, Selling More will begin Thursday evening October 25th and continue each Thursday through November 15th 6:30-8:00pm. Sessions will be held at the Sioux Falls Arts Council office 326 E 8th St, Sioux Falls, SD 57103.
This series is a perfect for creatives who want to move their business forward. It is important to understand the tools needed to promote a business as well as using demographics to identify a target audience. Not everyone is a prospect and learning to qualify who is saves time and frustration. There are many ways to generate income and we will dig into various possibilities.
- Tool kit and portfolio
- Marketing basics and qualifying prospects
- Generating income
- Pulling it all together
Fees for this series are $50 for all 4 sessions. For more information regarding the sessions email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 605-271-2904.
