I had a fantastic time with artists in Florida last weekend. On Saturday, it was a terrific group of about 60 or so students at the Ringling School of Art & Design. I learn so much from students and those who listen to my self-promotion will be miles ahead of their colleagues. I hope to do many more university workshops. (Contact me if you have a connection!)
Sadly, I have no pictures from the Ringling. Am hoping that the ones the staff took turn out and I can share.
On Sunday, I had a group of just 24 artists at the Art Center Manatee in Bradenton. Since this workshop was put together at the last minute, I was thrilled with the size. And, since it was so small, we had a ton of interaction. In fact, I believe at least two ArtBizConnection.com art-marketing salons formed as a result of the workshop. Here are some pictures taken after, sadly, some people had already left.
I'm flanked by Merrill Anderson and Sharon Crute, who are part of a group of 11 artists in an ArtBizConnection.com salon in Ocala. They drove 2.5 hours to be at the workshop.
