Artist Professional Development

The Bank of Montreal in partnership with Lakeshore Arts presents The Business of Art – a series of professional development workshops for artists. We are very happy to bring to the community a series of 8 workshop for artists focusing on skill development to assist in creative entrepreneurship. Learn about marketing and branding, small business/freelance finances and opportunities for turning your artistic hobby into a creative business. Sign up for one or two that interest you, or all 8 and receive a discount as well as a certificate of completion.

Each Thursday night workshop will be 3 hours in length (6:30 – 9:30pm) with a 15-20 min break and refreshments included. Participants enrolling and completing all 8 workshops will receive a certificate of completion to be presented by Bank of Montreal and Lakeshore Arts staff during the final workshop on May 26th.

*For all marked workshops participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own computer or device to participate fully. People who are unable to provide their own computer/device will have access to desktop iMacs at Lakeshore Arts but must inform us upon registration. iMac usage is limited and sharing may be necessary based on demand.
