The Art Festival is a 2-day education and networking event for artists in the entertainment industry. It is a place to learn new skills from well known professionals and to get personal advice about your art and career during portfolio reviews. Each speaker paints live on stage during our live demos and shows you how they apply certain techniques in their daily work. You can watch them draw, ask them questionsand learn from their experience. The live demos and portfolio reviews make up the largest part of our program and there will be no sponsored talks.
Our 2 discussion panels are an addition and tackle topics which are important for your career, health and life as an artist. Our speakers share their thoughts and feelings on stage and give you valuable tips. This is an interactive format, so you can ask questions and participate in the discussion! In the evening we have dinner together, get to know each other more and reflect on what we have learned during the day.
