Teaching Artist Training

Arts Educators as Entrepreneurs


How often have you heard “you can’t make a living in the arts”? You’re confident in your craft as a teaching artist and know the value of arts education, but maybe not as confident seeking out opportunities for work. How do you share your work with a wider audience? What if your work was so popular that you had to turn down jobs or hire employees? What if parents and school districts brought offers of work to YOU?

Bridget Palmer

Teaching Artist Bridget Palmer has wrestled with these questions for 20 years in Sonoma County. Through this workshop, she’ll share strategies and tips that have enabled her to grow her business, serve hundreds of children annually, develop essential relationships, and become one of the “go to” individuals in the local arts education community. Journey through a process designed to help you reflect on your business model, identify action steps, and receive feedback from a cohort of like-minded individuals. Bridget’s goal is to get you fired up as an arts educator to make money and change the world!
