The Artist Entrepreneur Series is provided thanks to the Artisans Center of Virginia, Blue Ridge Community College and the Shenandoah Valley Small Business Development Center.  You can choose among the different offerings, or register for the entire series.  Each workshop is led by a local expert on the subject and is taught with the artist in mind.

This Week:
The most important step when developing your business is to define your "Unique Value Proposition."  Your UVP is a clear statement that communicates the unique contributions you will make to your customers that are different from those of your competitors.  Learn the building blocks for organizing key elements into the foundational statement that will inform your artist business plan and drive your marketing.

Instructor: Sherri Smith

Courses are open to artists from all walks of the creative arts (visual, functional, performance, etc), not just craft!  If you are an artist seeking to develop or expand your entrepreneurial efforts, these courses are designed for maximum enjoyment and success!
