Business of Art Class

3-Day Artist as Brand Workshop-Greg Spalenka, 5/21-5/23/10 from 10am-8pm at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art.


Are you ready to embrace a new paradigm in art empowerment and prosperity? Then its time to think differently. What do Michelangelo, Ralph Lauren, Geogia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, Clint Eastwood, Auguste Rodin, Kelloggs, Sting, Frida Kahlo, Toyota, Picasso, Damien Hirst, Mark Ryden, Annie Leibovitz, Henry Moore, Greenpeace, Maxfield Parrish, Ray Bradbury, Joseph Beuys, and Elizabeth Taylor, all have in common?
They are all brands.
A brand is a purpose transformed into a product or service that connects to people, the planet, and beyond. The key word here is purpose, and specifically your purpose. This is where the heart of your essence resides, where your most potent art manifests, and the strength of your perseverance matures. The purpose inside you aligned with your personal vision is the foundation of your creative power. When your heart is joined with your art, a vital one of kind signature is formed. This brand is unique to you and your intimate product.
Art is a product and selling art is a business. Embracing these two fundamental truths will bring clarity to your career if you desire financial independence.
The Artist as Brand Workshop is a culmination of heart wisdom and entrepreneurial knowledge designed to empower independence and prosperity.
