In early 2019, FAC board member and mixed media artist Olivia Holt felt that something was missing in Hamilton County - information for artists to help them become entrepreneurs. While we have many established artists in Fishers and Hamilton County, there are always those who want to grow, connect with their community, and share their art. After surveying artists and community members over the course of half a year, Olivia found what they wanted: marketing help, community connections, getting into galleries, and more. With this feedback, Olivia developed her program.
In late 2019, Nickel Plate Arts recognized that several local arts groups had similar ideas to Olivia's, and with the help of Hamilton County Tourism - a 2020 season of programming was born. Programming can be found at Conner Prairie, Nickel Plate Arts, and The Da Vinci Pursuit (hosted at Hamilton County Tourism). [Details coming soon!]
FAC has partnered with Ignite Studio, located on the lower level of the Hamilton East Public Library, to bring you "Artist Skill Set Experience Talks" or ASSET: Artist Lecture Series. The lecture series is designed as panels with experienced members of the community giving artists (and everyone) the tools they need to succeed - plus you'll get to ask the questions you've always wanted, in these comfortable, classroom type settings.
Each session will be limited to 30 participants and registration is required over at Ignite Studio's website. The events are still being built online, so if you want to get in early, contact FAC on the form below and we'll get you set up. Sessions are on Thursday nights from 7pm - 8:30pm, free of charge, and open to all ages. Additionally, FAC will provide free child supervision while guests attend the series.
Keep checking back as this page will be updating as the 2020 season of programming develops!
