Introducing HOP: One-on-one hour long sessions to help WREN Members overcome common business challenges!

IMG_6571Sometimes you’re stuck on some aspect of running your business as an artist, and just need a little bit of help to get back on track or get moving in the right direction. Or you’re ready to take your business to the next level, but you don’t have the time or resources to invest a whole year or more in your career. Maybe you’ve found that you learn best in one-on-one situations as opposed to group settings. If any of these scenarios describe you, then The Gallery at WREN’s new HOP Sessions might be just what you need.
HOP stands for Helping Our People and is designed to give artists and entrepreneurs focused one-on-one help on a range of business of art topics in short, stand alone, no-nonsense sessions. Where the LEAP curriculum is comprehensive, cumulative and designed to transform one’s business plan as an artist over the course of a year, HOP is nuts and bolts help/feedback/instruction delivered in an hour, scheduled at the member’s convenience, and tailored to the member’s specific and individual needs.
Members can sign up for one-hour sessions with Gallery Manager Katherine Ferrier, to get help with the common business challenges, including:
  • Pricing Artwork
  • Writing and Editing a Bio
  • Writing and Editing an Artist Statement
  • Setting up an Instagram Account
  • Navigating Facebook
  • Deciding which galleries/opportunities to apply for
  • Presentation (“packaging”) of Work (frames, mats, hanging devices, etc)
  • How to Write and Deliver an Artist Talk
  • Putting together a strong gallery application
Need help with something you don’t see covered? E-mail with your question or challenge, and we’ll design a session just for you.
In-person sessions are available on most first and second Mondays of the month. Video Sessions can be booked at other times, pending availability. Check the calendar for available sessions.
Keep in mind HOP sessions are designed to tackle a single issue or topic, to get you unstuck and moving forward towards success in your business. WREN has an array of resources to help with big-picture business growth, such as our nationally recognized BETA program, and our year long business of art series, LEAP.
$45 for members. Free to members who income-qualify. Scholarships available, please email for application.
