Highland Park, Ill. (PRWEB) November 14, 2008
In preparation for the 2009 art festival season, Amdur Productions, one of the nation's leading art festival production companies, will host "Art Festival Boot Camp" on December 9th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at Bella Via Restaurante, 1899 Second Street in Highland Park, IL.
Amy Amdur, President and Founder of the Highland Park based company, will offer an insider's perspective on how artists can stand out among the crowd and maximize sales during art shows. Today's economic conditions demand that artists understand the business of showing at festivals. Her acclaimed one day seminar will include:
o What you need to know about getting into art shows but were afraid to ask
o Pricing and maximizing sales at fests
o The ins and outs of juries
o How to make your work stand out
o A mock jury of YOUR WORK
o Your booth: What works and why
o Question and answer session
Participants from past seminars are amazed by the results they see after attending Boot Camp with Amy Amdur. "The Art Festival Boot Camp was the most valuable time I have spent in the development of my business," says New York jewelry artist Judith Foster. Mike Brown echoes, 'This seminar gets an A+. The mock jury (alone) was worth the fee.'
Boot Camp is offered for $260 per person (additional spouse/partner $200) and $150 for full-time students with ID. Fee includes catered breakfast and lunch. Applications are available on line at http://www.amdurproductions.com. For more information call 847-926-4300.
