Artist Professional Development Workshops


In collaboration with ArtSpan, SOMArts presents a monthly workshop with artist development opportunities 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. These community events are designed to create a platform for artists to thrive, and to foster a Bay Area that values the arts.

Workshops are $10 to the general public and are free to ArtSpan and SOMArts artists. To find out more about the program, including previous workshop information and resources, click hereUpcoming events are listed below:
