PRESS RELEASE

The nationally recognized My Artrepreneur Program, an art-centered business course designed to help artists build a sustainable life in the arts, is coming to eastern Idaho under the sponsorship of the Idaho Commission on the Arts in partnership with the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho.

Designed with artists in mind, this course offers over 40 hours of intense instruction designed to help artists prepare 35 practical business tools, including honing an artist statement, organizing inventory, pricing, branding, finding target customers and building a plan. MAP was designed particularly for visual artists working in a range of mediums, and welcomes artists creating functional art in mediums such as glass, wood, leather, metal, textiles, fiber and clay.

All workshops will be held at the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho with workshop one beginning the course on March 16-17, 2019. Workshop two follows May 18-19, 2019; workshop three, July 20-21, 2019, and workshop four, September 21-22, 2019. The ICA is offering to match student dollars one-to-one, reducing the tuition from $1,000 to only $500 per student. Students are responsible for their own lodging and transportation.

The course is taught by its founder Dr. Edrienne L. Kittredge, a teacher, writer, and traditional artist, who has worked and lived across the U.S. She has researched, written, and taught about how individuals interact with their landscapes and use that resource to enrich their learning and creativity

Registration for the course is open, with a few slots remaining. For fee and registration information, and to apply, contact john.mcmahon@arts.idaho.gov or visit arts.idaho.gov/map.
