Asper-Smith to lead artist workshop at the City Museum

Posted: April 5, 2012 - 12:03am

Local artist and entrepreneur Sarah Asper-Smith will present “Making Your Art Work for You: Tools for Marketing, Communications & Sales” at the Juneau-Douglas City Museum on Saturday, April 7, from 1-3 p.m.

Asper-Smith, who has almost always worked for herself, says self-employment “requires flexibility, creativity and frugality. Frugality probably being the key word,” although she stated she would not be discussing Top Ramen recipes or how to darn socks. Instead, participants will learn various ways to carve out a niche for their talents, market their work and how to make connections with people who are willing to help artists grow as a professionals.

Asper-Smith’s accomplishments include the publication of the popular children’s book “Have You Ever Seen a Smack of Jellyfish,” exhibit planning and design for museums in Juneau, Nome, Barrow, Anchorage and Kodiak, and work on various projects with the Lucid Reverie team, as well as graphic design work for Perseverance Theatre.

The cost of the workshop is $15.75 including tax. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. To download a registration form, visit www.juneau.org/parkrec/museum/classes.php.

For more information or to register, contact the Juneau-Douglas City Museum at 586-3572.
