Long Beach area artists of all mediums and skill levels are invited to the new Bungalow Art Center, located in downtown Long Beach at 727 Pine Avenue, on October 27, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for valuable workshops on the critical business skills necessary for success in the arts.

The Artists Boot Camp will offer 18 sessions on a variety of topics including Copyright Legal Issues for artists, How to Start an Arts Nonprofit, How to Monetize Your Art, Artists as Leaders, and many more.

In addition to the sessions, Dr. James Manseau Sauceda, Director of the Multi Cultural Center at California State University Long Beach, will provide a Keynote Speech. Artists of all skill levels and mediums are welcome to attend.

“For $10, artists will be able to learn from a variety of local and regional experts in a wide selection of topics. There is truly something for everyone,” said Karen Reside, Chair of the Boot Camp Coordinating Committee.

The Boot Camp is hosted by the Cultural Alliance of Long Beach (CALB) and sponsored by the Arts Council for Long Beach and Arts Supply Warehouse. This is the second annual incarnation of the Artists Boot Camp, originally developed and coordinated by the Arts Council for Long Beach.

“Arts Month is a great time, as an arts community, to expand our knowledge base,” John Glaza, Interim Executive Director of the Arts Council for Long Beach. “The Arts Council had such positive reaction to last year’s Boot Camp that we knew it needed to return, and this year, we recognized this event as an opportunity to work collaboratively with arts organizers like CALB. They deserve our thanks for this year’s Boot Camp.”
