Workshops


Fresh Arts offers ongoing workshops over professional development topics for artists and arts administrators.


Pictured right: Funding Strategies for Individual Artists, presented by Fresh Arts.

Fresh Arts' career building workshops offer Houston’s artists and emerging arts organizations a “nuts and bolts” approach to their creative business, supplying them with the knowledge and take away resources to immediately put what they’ve learned into action. Our past workshop curriculum has covered a variety of topics including arts marketing, finance, fundraising, creative licensing, healthcare, and other business fundamentals. 

Since 2009, Fresh Arts (formerly Spacetaker) has hosted 115+ workshops and served nearly 3,500 artists through its professional development programs.
