Fresh Arts regularly hosts career-building programming that aim to increase artist business skills and networks, whether it be taxes, business plans, marketing, grant writing, etc.


Fresh Arts Workshops offer a nuts-and-bolts approach to provide introductory level information on various business fundamentals. Our past workshop curriculum has covered a variety of topics including Artist Taxes, Social Media 101, Intro to Public Art, Writing for the Media and more. Since 2009, Fresh Arts has hosted over 120 skill-building workshops for local artists and creatives.


NEW! Fresh Arts coLABS (launching Fall 2019) are one-part collaborative learning session and one part art-business laboratory.

Fresh Arts coLABS provide artists with a hands-on collaborative learning experience to advance knowledge and skill level in specific business areas related to their creative practice. Held in a small group setting, sessions are facilitated by a subject matter expert or artist mentor and designed to encourage peer learning and exchange. Participants work side-by-side to navigate targeted topic areas such as grant reviews, artist statement revisions, and tax returns to achieve common goals through expert guidance, applied activities, group discussion and peer review.
