Description

The Watering Can is presenting Business Basics for Artists and Creatives.
2 series of 4 classes focused on business development.


First series: Building the Foundation for Your Business
Thursday April 18
Thursday April 25
Thursday May 2
Thursday May 9

6:30-8:00 p.m.
Sessions held at the Sioux Falls Arts Council office.

This series is geared to creatives who are thinking of starting a business or just getting one underway. It will help clarify the business focus, how to get started and keep the momentum, as well as delving into finding prospects for your work. An important aspect in the beginning is how to price your work and set in place a method for record keeping.

Topics covered:

  • Where/what do I want my art business to be

  • Getting there and overcoming fear

  • Finding an audience and selling to them

  • Pricing considerations and record keeping

Fees for this series are $50 for all 4 sessions.


Second series: Growing My Business, Selling More
Thursday May 16
Thursday May 23
Thursday May 30
Thursday June 6
6:30-8:00 p.m.
Sessions will be held at the Sioux Falls Arts Council office.

This series is a perfect continuation of Building a Foundation, or can be taken separately by creatives who want to move their business forward. It is important to understand the tools needed to promote a business, as well as using demographics to identify a target audience. Not everyone is a prospect, and learning to qualify who is saves time and frustration. There are many ways to generate income, and we will dig into various possibilities.

Topics covered:

  • Tool kit and portfolio

  • Marketing basics and qualifying prospects

  • Generating income

  • Pulling it all together

Fees for this series are $50 for all 4 sessions.

Registration for BOTH series will reduce the total to $90.00.

THE WATERING CAN’s mission is to embrace the arts through community development, and assistance to artists in their professional and leadership development. Business Basics is offered with the support of the Sioux Falls Community Foundation.
