Artists and Entrepreneurs Monthly Art Talks

The last Wednesday of very month at Artascope Studios in South Portland, we gather for our monthly Artists and Entrepreneurs art talk. This group is a place to share the collective wisdom of Artists & Entrepreneurs everywhere who have developed successful techniques for handling the business side of art. We share information about marketing & promotion, social networking, online selling, representation, shows, wholesale vs. retail, accounting, bank financing, product development, branding, pricing, packaging and how to be successful.

This month on Wednesday June 30th Bethany Haeseler will lead a discussion on blogging.  Are you curious about it? Bethany will answer questions like “what should I write about?” and most importantly, “how do I get started?” Bethany is a professional webmaster and an accomplished artist, completing her MFA from Ohio State University in 2009. She has been blogging since 1998 and is a wealth of information. In this one-night workshop you will learn how to start your very own blog with WordPress. Bring your laptop, leave with a blog. Really. Join us at  Artascope Studios in South Portland, the talk starts at 7pm and will go until 8:30. There is no fee for this event.

We look forward to seeing you Wednesday evening! Come a bit early to meet other artists in your community. Bring business cards, any art projects to show off ( we LOVE show and tell!) and maybe some treats to share. And if you have a laptop bring it with you to get started on your blog right away (don’t forget your power cord)! If you don’t bring a laptop, that’s ok too, just bring yourself and any questions you have about blogging. See you there!

Join the Artists and Entrepreneurs Facebook group! RSVP to the event and post any questions you have right now so Bethany can get an idea of you want to learn on Wednesday.
