June 18, 2010 | NYTimes.com | By KATE TAYLOR. 2
city-financed courses devised to help artists help themselves. The group
attending the 5-week program includes painters, sculptors,
photographers, filmmakers, creative writers, actors, directors, dancers,
singers, and musicians...Group sessions cover subjects like
intellectual property and Internet marketing. Plus, each artist gets a
20-minute meeting with a New York Foundation for the Arts staff member
or an outside adviser to review his or her business plan. At the end of
the course, the students can apply for subsidized studio or rehearsal
space at the Brooklyn Army Terminal, courtesy of Chashama, an
organization that transforms vacant properties into art spaces.
