Fresh Arts regularly hosts free or low-cost career-building programming that aim to increase artist business skills and peer networks, whether it be taxes, business plans, marketing, grant writing, etc. As with all of our program offerings, our professional development curriculum is designed to work with artists across all disciplines.
Fresh Arts Workshops
Led by local subject matter experts, Fresh Arts workshops offer a nuts-and-bolts approach to provide introductory level information on various business fundamentals. 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 130 skill-building workshops for local artists and creatives.
NEW! Fresh Arts PeerLabs
Fresh Arts PeerLabs are small group-style workshops designed to encourage peer learning and exchange. PeerLab participants work independently and as a group to navigate a specific topic area through applied activities, open discussion and peer reviews. PeerLabs sessions aim to provide artists with a collaborative and supportive learning experience to advance skill level and expand their peer network. Future PeerLab sessions will include Grant Reviews, Artist Statement and Bio Peer Reviews, Goal Setting Exercises and more.
