This workshop is for artists who are serious about creating a defined plan for their art business.  A business plan can be simple or complex depending on what you want to accomplish.  Its overarching purpose is to guide the growth of your business.  It additionally illustrates the prospective success of your business to outside entities such as investors, lenders or patron audiences.  Arts Center of Virginia’s Executive Director will help you frame your goals, the scope and the functional areas of your business through exercises that focus on the key elements of a comprehensive plan.  Realizing that a final business plan can take weeks to develop, the anticipated outcome for this one day workshop is for you to leave with a jump start draft that you can refine on your own.  At any time within 3 months after the completion of the workshop, via email, Sherri has offered to review your refined draft.  In order to maximize the day, on the Monday prior to the workshop you will be sent a preparation sheet to be completed before arrival. Plan to bring a lunch and provide your own flash drive.
