Happy Good Make Feel Nice: How Art Turns A Profit

Tuesday, June 18th 6-10pm

The Daily Grind Cafe 7 Art Bar, 1479 Birmingham Street, $2.00

Presentation followed by our usual low-key, friendly socializing. Happy Hour until 8pm.

Though only in the freelance illustration business for four years, Liz Mac has made a name for herself using her skills AND her personality. She’s learned the hard way that it takes more than talent to sell art – you also have to think, act, and sell, creatively to stand out in a crowd. Liz will be dropping by E3C on June 18 to tell you her story and how she changed her underdog status into a viable source of income.

Feeling overwhelmed about your arts career? Unsure if you’ll ever pay the bills with creativity? Have no idea where to start? Liz will tell you how she answered these questions for herself, and this answer – is literally – FUN.

No matter what your discipline, save the date for this event, learn something new and make new acquaintances.  Hang out with other creative professionals, students and enthusiasts!
