Join artist Gaetanne Lavoie at the Tett Centre for a comprehensive 3 hour workshop that will cover the basic necessities to begin your journey toward becoming a self-sufficient professional full-time artist! Become your own boss and begin to dictate how the market receives your work. Rather than the market dictating what you create, create what you want and learn how to market, sell and finance your art.
