    Whenever awesome stuff like this is going on it makes me wish I could just teleport myself to that location. No expensive plane tickets or entrance fees. It sucks to live over-seas sometimes.

    It's an online steaming class, so it doesn't matter where you live.

    We're having company, and I'm afraid I'll miss the last bit of the session. I've never done this before; will I be able to watch what I've missed at a later date?

    APPRECIATE THE SMALL SUCCESS' (but don't let them get to your head)
    NOTHING HAPPENS OVERNIGHT- IT'S A PROCESS THAT TAKES DECADES

    GETTING STARTED
    - Creating Content / Personal Voice / Defining your vision
    - how do you want to represent yourself as an artist?
    - you control what we see
    - what do you have to say with your art?
    - is it a focus on specific content?
    - content can be abstract
    - a sincere, dedicated interest in craft
    -becoming a master of your medium
    -practicing the craft knowing that perfection does not exist
    - your art in relationship to art history and contemporary art
    - should you care?
    - why does it matter?

    DEALING WITH THE PROCESS
    *Establish yourself locally/regionally- give yourself a deadline to create a body of work
    - Finding the right representation / galleries / venues
    GROUP SHOWS are a great way to start to understand the process- and create interest in your work
    - what galleries and why? and why would they choose your art?
    - understanding the process / relationship
    - the 50/50 split
    - galleries' responsibilties
    - artists responsibilities
    - contracts, shipping, etc.
    - similarity of styles/ niche/ like minded folk
    do you like the work of artists that they represent?
    - intern / volunteer working with artists and galleries whose art you like and respect
    part of your relationship in the artists community is getting to know the community and getting the community to know you

    PRICING YOUR FINE ART
    - starting out
    - creating a collector base
    (creating 'affordable art')
    - slowly raising the bar
    - psychology of pricing / creating a market (understanding it but not being a slave to it)

    THE BUSINESS SIDE
    - creating a resume / c.v.
    * look at other successful artist's as examples
    - creating an artist statement
    *keep it simple
    - contracts
    * typically, galleries keep work for 6 months after a solo show, 30 days after a group show
    - registering copyright
    http://www.copyright.gov/
    - taxes (saving 30% and keeping legitimate and organized receipts)

    THE BOTTOM LINE
    - what's important to you
    - it's about the art
    - critical analysis / personal and peer based
