Use this class to build your skills in one of the most difficult aspects of life as a creative professional: the professional part. By approaching marketing from four angles – business planning, creating a niche, portfolio development, and presenting yourself – you will learn how to market and present your work more effectively and with more confidence. In the first class, you will build a strategic plan and a series of goals based on identifying opportunities in your local market, analyzing your own strengths, and defining your audience, as well as cover the basics on how to meet those goals and generally become comfortable with this “business” business. In the second class, you will focus on your target audience in order to optimize your portfolio, as well as learn how your own artistic style can be used to shape your professional image into something both marketable and personal.
