Many creative people have a hard time getting “out there” and being seen as the brilliant makers that we are. In this workshop, we’ll work through some of the roots of these false narratives that help keep us hidden--untangling what get's us stuck and staying stuck, what inspires us and what our biggest fears around art making are. We will also learn basic marketing tips and practical steps for growing a project and a practice (time management, social media outreach, asking for help from your community and helping your community). Bring a notebook and something to write with and your big questions!
