Education Workshops

The Arts & Business Council’s Education programs create an opportunity for individual artists, creative professionals, arts nonprofits, and the business community to learn the most progressive, effective, and creative techniques to bolster business and expand the creative economy.

For creatives of all genres and experience levels, we offer monthly seminars on a wide-range of topics that explore the business of art to help artists make a living and a life from their creative endeavors. In addition to regular seminars, we also offer an intensive training opportunity, Periscope: Artist Entrepreneur Training, which takes place once a year and accepts applications each January-February.

We also provide additional workshops for business professionals looking to engage more deeply with the creative economy. Many seminars are approved for Continuing Legal Education credit for attorneys as well.
