Artist INC is a cutting edge training seminar that addresses the specific business needs and challenges artists of all disciplines face every day. Limited to 25 participants per session, artists gather for one night a week for eight weeks to learn business skills specific to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with their peers. Using an innovative class design, artists learn and grow together through artist facilitator mentoring, small group application activities, as well as large group discussion and multi-media lecture. Now in its ninth year, the Artist INC workshop has been completed by more than 1000 regional artists. Artist INC Wichita is hosted by Harvester Arts and supported in part by an award from Mid-America Arts Alliance, The Kansas Creative Industries Commission, The National Endowment for the Arts and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The next Artist INC Wichita session will be in the Summer of 2018. This session will run on eight consecutive Monday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm from June 25, - August 20, 2018 with a break on July 2, 2018. Sessions will take place at Harvester Arts, 2015 Washington N, Wichita, KS 67202.
