A unique, after-school adventure for middle and high school students, interested in music, art, dance or theater.
In cooperation with the St. Petersburg Greenhouse, St. Pete Chamber, Creative Clay Studio, Florida Craftsman Gallery, St. Pete Opera Company and St. Petersburg College
Forward Thinking Initiatives (FTI), a Tampa Bay non-profit that has been teaching youth entrepreneurship for nine years, is partnering with The St. Petersburg Greenhouse to help foster youth entrepreneurship in the community. FTI and the Greenhouse are set to launch the first, youth entrepreneurship academy program on February 17, 2014.
The kick-off program will be ART-repreneurship. When you are working in the arts, it’s not always apparent that YOU are the product you have to sell. If you want to be a fine artist, designer, dancer, musician or actor you must also have the business skills to promote your own work. This program is designed to help teens who aspire to become artists, back up their artistic abilities with business skills that will support their passion.
What students will learn:
How to launch your own business in the arts
Website development for artists
How to market yourself/your portfolio/your product for school or career
Understand if your idea is a real opportunity?
Meet professional artists/entrepreneurs and learn how they got their start.
How galleries select their artists
Career opportunities in the arts
Cost: $260 for the full program
Dates: Monday, February 17 – March 27, 2014
Time: Kick Off from 1-3 pm (President’s Day) and all other days 4:30 – 5:30 pm
Locations: (various locations see registration link for details)
