VPP's Annual Conference - Day 3 of 3 - Afternoon
Monica Sigmon: The Artist Project
Join Monica Sigmon, Sony Artisan of Imagery, for an inspiring program all about staying fresh, creative, and challenged all year-round with model calls, invitationals and–most of all–artist projects.
Learn how she used Art of Motion: The Virtual Exhibition to blend the artistic vision which goes into an artist project with the branding of her portrait studio to unequivocally send out the message of being innovative, singular, and the only choice for families to commission portrait work for their home.
In addition, she will explore the creation of a style, building a framework, telling the story to your community, generating excitement for your project, presenting the finished art work, and using your project to building lasting relationships.
Follow along and learn the essential steps to maximize the potential of your next project. You’ll leave this class armed with loads of inspiration and practical strategies not only elevate your skillset and brand, but create new offerings that are sure to delight your clients.
