A Day With Artists For page-0Artists


“Helping Artists with The Business of Art”

Come join Wendy Klug, director of Art UP, as she shares her knowledge through a hands-on seminar aimed at emerging and established artists looking for additional business help.  This seminar is geared for visual artists of all mediums.  Seminar topics will include: What Is Art UP?  Working To Get What You Want, Website Development, Marketing That Works For You, and Online Advertising.  These seminars will be taught with a  “hand-on method” allowing you to start your business venture while receiving one-on-one attention.  Join us as we gather with artists from your community and start your business venture.

The seminar will be held in Wahpeton, North Dakota, through a cooperative initiative called Art Up. “We are excited and eager to help artists with professional business services designed for art-based businesses,” stated Wendy Klug, ND Small Business Development Center Business Consultant.  “We are here to offer seminars that will help beginning artisans as well as those established artists looking to fine tune their business strategies.  Each seminar will be followed by individual consultations where each artist can receive training tailored to their wants and needs to become a successful artist in their business adventure.

“North Dakota has very talented artists who deserve a wider customer base, and assistance specialized to their industry.  The Art Up initiative is one way we can help the arts community grow,” says Wendy Klug.  “As a business consultant and an artist myself, I understand the importance of tailoring each artists needs to their specific goals.  I want to be able to provide artists, whether they are emerging or established, access to new venues and web based outlets which can help them see greater sales.  I want to be there to support each artist and their business.“

 Art Up will be there by your side as you venture into the business.  Each seminar is followed by one-on-one consultations, free of charge, if the artist wishes to do so.  During these consultations, Art Up will offer you business advice that will help you grow as an artist and business.  Art Up will offer additional seminar events throughout the year.   If you are interested in attending upcoming seminars and receiving one-on-one consultations, email Wendy for more information at or call 701-213-8482 to reserve your spot today.

  Not able to make this seminar?  Art Up will be having seminars around the state of North Dakota and would love to see you there. Those interested in a specific topic or would like to learn more about a specific aspect of the arts business can contact Wendy Klug at wendy@ndsbdc.
