Interested to collect art but not sure where to start? Intimidated about inquiring about prices?
So many people think that art collecting takes a life time of savings and expertise in the field of art history. Not true! Art collecting requires understanding your budget, narrowing down what kind of art you like, and figuring out how you're going to find it.
We have designed a workshop that will help you:
~ Identify where you currently stand with your art collecting process. Are you just starting? Looking to grow your collection? Do you have a few pieces but not sure where to hang them or how they display together?
~ Learn how to talk about art and talk with artists to find the art you like. This includes breaking through the "intimidation barrier"
~ Define your style and needs (& wants!)
~ Review of types of artists and types of artwork to look for
~ Identify themes in your (new or growing) art collection
~ Make a budget to intentionally grow your collection. This includes costs you may not have considered and buying etiquette.
Join us for a discussion on art & art collecting. Light refreshments provided.
At the end of the workshop, two artists will join us for the last 20 minutes to discuss their art to provide you with some practice speaking to artists!
