I took this class and it is an excellent introduction to things artists need to be considering beyond their craft. This class is made of the stuff graduate programs refuse to confront.From exhibition venues, to studio practices, to seeking mentoring, to how to market yourself, to even hanging your first show. Rosetta provides you with lots of stories some researched, some told over wine after a reception, but always filled with information to be seriously pondered. Because of her legal background Ms. DeBerardinis, takes the time to research her topics to their fullest. I highly recommend this class for all artists, because without a fundamental understanding of this challenging business we, the artists, can never have power over our lives and the work we produce to sustain us.
