Highly recommended workshop, "Artists U Intensive: Building a Sustainable Life as an Artist," is coming to the Soulé Art Space in Florence, SC!


Attention Pee Dee artists! The Artists U Intensive: Building a Sustainable Life as an Artist is coming to the Soulé Art Space in Florence May 26 and 27.

Artists are talented, hard-working people, so why are so many exhausted, broke, and overwhelmed? Artists U will present tools and approaches for building a balanced, sustainable artist life. Based on 10 years of work with artists locally and nationally, artist leaders Andrew Simonet (Philadelphia), Michaela Pilar Brown (Columbia) and Rodney Lee Rogers (Charleston) will offer artists tools for reconnecting with deep values, building community, and managing time and money.

Dates and location:
  • Friday, May 26, 7 – 8:30 pm
  • Saturday, May 27, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Location: Soulé Art Space, 130 S. Irby St., Florence, SC 29501
  • How much does it cost? It’s free (but the class size is limited).
  • Who is it for? South Carolina artists.
  • Do you have to attend both sessions? Yes.
  • Will there be beverages? Of course. And lunch on Saturday.
  • How do I apply to participate? Find out more about Artists U and register here.
Any professional South Carolina artist may apply to attend (you do not have to live in Florence.) You will be notified once you are enrolled.


[Greg's note: I did this workshop last year in Greenville, brought several grad students, and it was so worth the time.  In retrospect: it would have been worth paying to attend, but this our SC Arts Commission at work!  Take advantage!  I can't recommend this workshop highly enough.  Andrew Simonet is inspiring and Artist's U is a wonderful organization. Also, the new Florence County Museum is well worth a visit. In short:  GO! GO! GO!]
