Take Small Steps to Reach Art Goals

Take steps each week and month to reach your personal and professional art goals in 2017! Below are some suggestions to help you get started on the right path:

1) Send out those e-mails and make those calls to prospective clients to let them know about your artwork
2) Schedule art shows and exhibitions for your artwork, photography or sculpture
3) Collaborate and work together with other artists to reach a larger audience or complete a project you have always wanted to do

Use the above ideas as starting points for assisting you in sharing your art in 2017 with your audience!

Make 2017 Your Year of Art and Creativity

Set yourself a goal of making 2017 your most art-filled and creative year yet! Try a painting or drawing class; take music lessons; or go to the theatre for a play or concert. Whatever it is that you may like to try to grow your creative skills and abilities, take a step forward and give it a try.

We at Sunny Bay Arts look forward to helping you reach your creative and art goals in 2017! Make sure to check back regularly for upcoming exhibitions, new artwork, and art classes.
