Passion alone won't make you a successful artist.  And that's a problem because art is a true calling—there is nothing else you'd rather be doing.   The life of an artist does not have to be defined as one of financial struggle.

Join us for an interactive career development workshop with life coach, artist , and entrepreneur Alexandra Phillips.   This event is designed for visual artists, actors, performers, writers, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, career-changers, and others working in the "arts" —whether you are just beginning, or are at the top of your game.

Learn how to turn your artistic talent into lifework that pays the bills.

Personal business coach and Brown alum Alexandra Phillips will help you:

  • Learn to establish a life/work balance on terms that work for you
  • Create a financially viable and abundant artistic vision
  • Design a follow-through plan
Overall, you will be able to create a workable follow-through plan so that you can begin to practice the art of success in all artistic ventures. All the while asking for the financial compensation that you deserve.

Wine and cheese will be served!
