Making Art Work: Professional Development Series

Commissions with Chantal Rousseau

Online, 22 November, 6–7:30 pm

Commissions can be a great way to generate income, but there are also potential pitfalls you want to avoid. This workshop introduces strategies for positively integrating commissions into your artistic practice. It covers how to create a commission process, pricing strategies, payment structures, timelines, negotiating with clients, contracts, shipping and marketing.

Chantal Rousseau has been a practicing artist for over 20 years, primarily focused on painting and animation. She has had numerous exhibitions within Canada and internationally, as well as creating site-specific artist-led exhibitions and temporary public art projects.   Sign up

Agnes, Modern Fuel and Union Gallery are pleased to co-present this series.
