The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a professional development seminar for artists and other creative people on Tuesday, September 13, from 5:30-6:30 PM at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. Join us as we welcome Lisa Gifford Mueller!
Lisa Gifford Mueller will instruct attendees on how and why to use popular social media networks to promote their art and grow their creative business using social media platforms. Attendees will learn tips to boost your message and attract the right people, as well as how to turn likes, followers and pins into customers and sales; and how to increase your social network using a handful of free tools effectively and without taking time away from what you love: creating art. This workshop will primarily cover Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, and it will also discuss YouTube, blogging, SnapChat, Periscope and Facebook Live to get attendees ready to create their social media marketing strategy. Even if you’ve taken Social Media for Artists & Creatives before, this is an opportunity to learn more and leave ready to apply your knowledge in your creative business.
The presentation is $5 for members of the Arts & Culture Alliance and $8 for non-members. Secure your spot at the workshop by making a payment via PayPal below or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lisa Gifford Mueller is a fused glass artist, photographer, creative entrepreneur and mentor. Nine years ago, Mueller quit her corporate job and launched ALM Photo, a professional photography business, with her husband. Shortly thereafter she had the opportunity to take over a fledging fused glass business, and armed with a glass cutter and a kiln, taught herself the art of fused glass and brought Sassy Glass Studio to life. Over the years, both businesses have grown dramatically, and Mueller fell in love with helping other artists and creative entrepreneurs realize their dreams of making a successful business of creating and selling their art. She teaches fused glass classes, educates photographers and mentors creative business owners and artists to give them the spark they need to launch or grow their endeavor. She is also the Captain of the local Etsy Team, Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team and a Co-Chair of Fantasy of Trees, an annual event to benefit East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
