It's tough being an artist. The numbers behind a career in the arts are hard to understand on top of the fact that most creative people are right-brained! But there is a practical approach to understating what it will take to have a successful career as an artist.
This workshop will explore the important decisions one must consider, from understanding your risk tolerance to building your brand to saving for retirement. The format will be interactive, so please come with questions and get involved in the discussion!
Space is limited, reserve your spot today!
Please contact the Printshop if you have any questions.

Since moving to New York in 2005, he built a career working in Asset Management and corporate strategy for JPMorgan. In 2014, he decided to combine his business experience and passion for the visual arts to launch Sugarlift, with the goal of connecting a new generation of artists and collectors. When Wright isn’t busy meeting with artists, art advisors and collectors, he’s visiting New York’s many museums and stopping by Sotheby’s to see his wife Calvine, who specializes in Old Master paintings.
