Flourishing Artist Workshop
Sunday October 7 at my studio in Clearwater
After working professionally as an artist for many years, and knowing the struggles of other artists, I started my Flourishing Artist Workshops in Los Angeles three years ago to offer my help. Due to their success, I began holding local workshops wherever my studio was based, which is currently in Clearwater FL.
To help visual artists to find success and take positive action to make their living from their art. “Starving artist” myths abound and while it is not always easy, it is possible and there are solutions.
Focus of this workshop:
- The basic actions that are the foundation to making one’s living from one’s art.
- How to find and establish a niche market for your art.
- Meeting with other local artists and exchanging tips and recommendations based on hard won experience.
WHEN: Sunday Oct 7 2.30 – 4.30 pm
WHERE: Leisa Collins Art studio/home -1004 Woodruff Ave, Clearwater FL
The workshops are interactive and relaxed. My time, and that of any guest artists, will always be given freely with the sole purpose of helping other artists to support themselves through their art.
There is an optional charge of $5 to cover coffee, tea and refreshments.
A little about myself:
I established Leisa Collins Art nine years ago. My work focuses on a passion I have for architecture and I created a niche market for custom portraits of homes and historic buildings. Initially my business was based only in Northern Virginia where I had my first studio. However using PR and marketing skills, it soon grew and I am now able to travel extensively, while running my art business from anywhere in the world. I receive commissions nation-wide and have completed architectural portraits in all 50 states.
I am currently putting together a coffee book together that will show my architectural journey across the USA, from the eyes of an artist. I am involved with many community art projects including the Leisa Collins Historic Preservation Award where I present my original painting award to worthy recipients around the country.
Hope you can make it!
