This August, Springboard for the Arts is coming to Rondo with classes from their Work of Art Series. From their website: "Springboard’s Work of Art: Business Skills for Artists is a professional development curriculum designed to teach business skills to artists in all disciplines — visual, performing and literary arts. Artists can take the whole series, customized combinations, or individual workshops that best suit their needs." If you are an artist, maker, or creative entrepreneur, these events will have something for you.
