    The Power of Potluck: Building a Strong Community Network

    Katherine Ferrier and Jason Tors

    Your overall success as an artist is directly related to the network of relationships you forge, both in your own small community and the art world at large. No artist can build a career on their own. We all benefit from a solid and supportive network we can lean on when we need help, advice, or an introduction. This last session of the LEAP series of “Business of Art” classes is equal parts hands-on workshop and potluck holiday social. We’ll start out by covering some simple steps you can take to build a strong and vibrant network, then practice some easy icebreakers to use in social situations. We’ll wrap up with a lively social hour, and an “Art Swap” (think “Yankee Swap, but with original works of art!) Participants will leave with some solid networking techniques, new contacts and a few original art goodies just in time for the holidays!
