About this course:
Studio visits are a valuable opportunity to share and speak about your work, get constructive feedback and build new relationships. They can lead to sales, exhibitions, recommendations and life long connections. But they can also be nerve wracking.
When it comes to a studio visit, you can’t control how someone will react to your work in person. But you can create the best possible environment and circumstances for your visitor to appreciate your work and enjoy the experience.
This free course lays out the six steps to successfully prepare for, host and follow up on a professional studio visit, from the perspective of an arts professional who has been on hundreds of visits over the years. Follow these steps and you’ll wow any visitor with your poise, professionalism, preparedness - and most of all your work!
My name is Alix Sloan. I've been working in Advertising, PR & Marketing for 25+ years. I've also been working with creatives as a Consultant and Coach for over two decades. Five years ago, I became a Certified Social Media Strategist and Advertising Specialist and also began creating online courses to help artists navigate the business side of the arts. In 2020, I completed Cara Stein's Book Marketing Certification program and began collaborating with Passion Project Publishing, a group of writers, editors, marketers and strategists who provide editorial, marketing and consulting services to authors. I am also an author myself. In my courses for artists and authors I distill all that I've learned about business, marketing, and social media into straightforward, easy to follow courses tailored specifically for the challenges creatives face.
