Artists Who Hustled

Famous artists from Rembrandt to Warhol didn’t sit around in their studios and wait to be discovered – they hustled! In this workshop, we’ll uncover time-tested strategies for making a living from your art. We’ll also brainstorm with like-minded creatives on how to adapt them to your practice in a way that feels right to you. In the process, we’ll learn that art and business go hand in hand!

Our instructor Sarah McGavran wrote her doctorate on the ways modern artists like Matisse created their public images and marketed their art. Her new venture The Creative Interpreter combines these interests, offering content writing and editing to artists and creatives as well as galleries. Sarah has a background in painting and holds a Ph.D. in art history from Washington University in St. Louis, and a B.A. in art history from Kenyon College.

This workshop is part of the Springboard for the Arts “The Work of Art Toolkit: Business Skills for Artists” curriculum and is presented by the Arts Enterprise Institute, a program of Arlington Arts.

Springboard for the Arts is a nationally recognized economic and community development organization for artists by artists. Its mission is to cultivate vibrant communities by connecting artists with the skills, information, and services they need to make a living and a life. Springboard for the Arts has a goal of distributing 10,000 “Work of Art Toolkits.” The Arts Enterprise Institute is participating in its initiative.
