Are you an artist, illustrator or designer interested in building a freelance career? The key to finding freelance work as an independent creative is learning how to effectively work with Art Directors.

An art director is the person in charge of hiring artist and designers who produce images for television, film, live performances, advertisements, or video games. They determine the overall style or tone desired for each project and find the creative talent they need to bring their vision to live. Your ability to present your work, manage project and meet deadlines will determine how much work you are offered.  Every creative must learn how to approach Art Directors and effectively present their work if they want to build a sustainable career.

This three-day live online workshop will show you how to craft a powerful pitch, build a list of target clients and approach Art Directors in a way that will land you more projects. 

This workshop will cover:
+ Working with Art Directors
+ Finding the best market for selling your work
+ Crafting a powerful pitch
+ Building a list of Art Directors
+ Pitching Art Directors and landing projects
