“My Artrepreneur Program”
The Idaho Commission on the Arts is partnering with The Art Spirit Education Collaboratory in Coeur d’Alene to offer an intensive course in business skills for practicing artists. Designed from the artists’ perspective, My Artrepreneur Program provides artists with a compass for navigating the complicated and often daunting task of building a sustainable life in the arts. Students will receive 40 hours of instruction from Dr. E. L. Kittredge over four weekends from July to October. Saturday sessions are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays are 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Interim progress sessions will be conducted via the internet. This course is intended for artists willing to commit the time and resources necessary to advance their business practices. Enrollment is limited. Tuition is $500. Students are responsible for their own lodging and expenses.
