Chris, the author of “Artist Survival Skills: How to Make a Living as a Canadian Visual Artist,” makes the implementation of some basic business practices comprehensible and gives attendees an enthusiasm for some of the practical skills that can very effectively build a visual arts practice. Chris understands the artistic personality; he knows business building techniques that are well suited to the artistic temperament. Past participants are gratified by his presentations.
