ART SCENE NEWSLETTER: FESTIVALS, GEMS OF WISDON….

January 29, 2014 Hey there art peeps! The week is going by and there is a lot to get done. For the past few months, I have posted about art fairs and festivals. There are some of you that illustrate or draw professionally, for others a hobby or maybe your just starting out. These fairs and festivals are another way of showcasing your hard-earned work. You want people to know about the quality, and don’t be surprise if you have to answer questions about the work. This is where you pretty much do the talking. I’ve been keen to read advice from some good sites like Artsy Shark and Arts Business Institute. Yes, those are the articles you have seen posted on here. They have a wealth of knowledge about everything about art from illustration, photography, or jewelry making. I like to call these gems of art wisdom. So we got an art fair or festival and some other good stuff! Anyone living in Novi, Michigan? SPRING GREAT LAKES ART FAIR April 11 – 13, …
