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 tenth year, the Artist INC seminar has been completed by  more than1000 regional artists.Artist INC Tulsa is supported in part by an award from Mid-America Arts Alliance, the National Endowment for the Arts, Kathleen P. Westby Foundation and individuals throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas.
