    Entrepreneurial Thinking and Tactics for Artists

    November 3 and 4, 2017 (Friday and Saturday)
    9AM-NOON and 1-4PM (both days)
    Tuition: $265
    25% discount for LVAC members

    Location: Penn State Lehigh Valley, 2809 Saucon Valley Road, Center Valley PA 18034

    This workshop was developed by Thomas Mann to answer a continuing demand from artists for access to small business management know-how and career development. Tom has been presenting his DƒS workshop continuously since 1989 for schools, universities, guilds, art councils and art centers all around the US and Canada. The content of these workshops and lectures is applicable to ALL artists working in ALL MEDIUMS.

    Most recently, in June 2017, Mann led 12 participants through a two weeks long Design ƒor Survival – Designer Boot Camp at the Penland School of Crafts in Penland NC. He produced for the first time in the summer of 1989 at Penland and has been there on 3 other two-week workshop occasions since then.

    The two-day version of the two-week DƒS workshop is a distillation of all of the salient information contained in the longer form into a focused, valuable, info delivery.

    DAY 1: Participants will witness a daylong series of three lectures: Design Vocabularies: what are they and how to use them; De-Mystifying Public Relations; and Pricing your Work: the Pivot Point of Success.
    DAY 2: The second day allows participants to make presentations of their own work and business practice for a positive critique by Tom and fellow workshop members.

    SKILL LEVEL: BEGINNER TO ADVANCED ALL ART/CRAFT MEDIUMS

    THOMAS MANN, an Allentown, PA native, and icon of the American Craft Jewelry movement, has been a full-time practicing professional artist for over 40 years. He describes himself as an artist working in the medium of jewelry and sculpture. He works with a variety of metals, thinking of them as painters think of their palettes -Each metal having its own color and luster. He’s inspired by parts from machines, electronic instruments, costume jewelry, and old postcards & photos.

    His recurring but always changing parts give Mann’s work its storytelling quality and theatricality. He calls this design vocabulary, which combines industrial aesthetics and materials with evocative themes and romantic imagery, “Techno-Romantic”. Thomas Mann developed Techno.RomanticTM after years of experimenting with the idea of incorporating 20th-century collage and assemblage techniques into jewelry making -Attempting to humanize technology and provide raw material and inspiration for our imaginations. Thomas Mann lives and works in New Orleans where he oversees a jewelry design and production studio, a sculpture studio, a gallery and most recently a teaching space.

They think that this young lady may be just the trifle they are looking for…but they may have met their match. Soon, Teddy is prepared to return home, while Ruth has other plans. These characters blur the lines between fallacy and truth; still this Tony award winning play is full of raw honesty.
