There have been many requests over the years for live events and I’ve honestly resisted doing them because of the time and effort it takes to coordinate. I have chosen instead to use the internet, live Ask Calls, eBooks and individual coaching as my way of sharing what I know with artists wanting to decide if art licensing is right for them or who want help growing their business. I have taught classes at SURTEX and participated in a panel at the Licensing Expo but have never created my own event… until now.

I fully understand the value of learning at a live event. How the energy of a group and being able to share and bounce ideas off each other without computer screens or phone lines in the way can really make a difference.

I finally decided to give a live event a try and sat down and asked myself what format would benefit artists and also be a fun and rewarding format for me. I decided that a small group format, around my dining room table sounded like the answer. I won’t be lecturing for the day and you won’t simply be taking notes. We can interact, ask questions, get to know each other… I’m excited just writing about it – so will you be one of the 8 to try out this format with me?

The first ever LIVE EVENT hosted by artist Tara Reed will take place in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, December 8, 2012 from 9 am to 5 pm

If you are in (or willing to come to) the Portland, Oregon area, go to ArtLicensingInfo.com/intensive-event.html to get all the details and sign up.  If it goes well, I’ll consider doing this in other areas but first things first…

Here’s to your creative success –
