Come to this ArtSpan professional development workshop to learn tips and tricks that can further your career as a visual artist from Joshua Coffy, an visual artist working primarily in acrylic paints and mixed media. He draws inspiration from the natural wonders of the world and our connections to it, and his paintings are heavily influenced by illustration, murals, scientific drawings, and street art. He has had great success using DIY promotion to climb the art ladder from coffee shops to solo shows, and successfully promoted his latest project, The Gift Prolific, to raise 126% of his funding goal.
ArtSpan presents monthly 90-minute workshops designed to sharpen business and financial literacy for professional artists, prepare artists for exhibiting work inside and outside the studio, and encourage community between fellow artists and the public. Through these community events ArtSpan creates a platform for artists to thrive, fostering a Bay Area that values the arts.
The Make Art Your Business series is presented at SOMArts through participation in the Affordable Space Program, which provides below-market rental space, production and publicity assistance to nonprofit organizations. For more information visit our rentals page.
