Artists of all disciplines have long struggled with obstacles of business. There are many reasons that these challenges may exist within your practice including, lack of goal setting, planning and implementation; absence of purpose, values and vision; feeble marketing and messaging; frequent isolation and limited networking; inadequate budgeting, recordkeeping and fiscal responsibility; and more.

An initial part of the equation, which is frequently not considered, is knowing what your values and/or guiding principles are for your art practice. The second part of the equation is establishing goals which can be implemented. In order to complete the equation, it is important to ensure that your values are aligned with your goals; it can otherwise become a challenge to work on achieving goals that are against what you believe and/or practice.

Led by arts consultant Susan Koblin Schear, this online workshop will define what values and guiding principles are, and why they are important to and for you. Examples of values and guiding principles will be shared. Developing and implementing goals will also be addressed and supplemented with examples and best practices. Finally, values-based goals will be examined and discussed in depth, substantiated by examples, as this may be or is a new concept to many artists participating in the webinar.

This online workshop is for you and about you. Be prepared to share, engage, learn and work towards enhancing your business practice. We welcome your questions, which will be addressed at the conclusion of the webinar and we look forward to seeing you online!
