In preparation for Open Studios 2014 the Dorchester Arts Collaborative is presenting a series of workshops to help artists get as much as possible out of their participation in the event. Each workshop will run from 11:30am - 1:00pm and includes a light lunch. Cost is $15 for each session or $30 for the whole series. All sessions will be held at the air conditioned Erick Jean Center for the Arts at 157A Washington Street, one block south of Columbia Road in Dorchester. The focus for each Saturday will be as follows:
September 20 – Promotion: How to get prospective buyers to see your work with an emphasis on using social media.
September 27 – Pricing: Finding the right balance between work that is affordable for the Open Studios audience and underestimating the value of your efforts.
October 4 – Presentation: Designing your table to attract buyers and displaying your items for maximum impact.
