The Clark Hulings Fund for Visual Artists (CHF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that equips professional visual artists to be self-sustaining entrepreneurs. Hulings, a nationally acclaimed American painter, understood the challenges of being an artist. For that reason, CHF supports visual artists regardless of the styles or movements in which they work. CHF's intent is to help professional working artists thrive economically from the art that they choose to create, and to bring about the kind of comprehensive cultural change that fills our world with a wide variety of art. Hulings believed that artistic development can and should occur continually, and never stopped trying to become a better artist, honing his craft until he was well into his 80s, but he also understood that---no matter how great the talent or strong the discipline---the door to success swings on financial pegs.
Participants will have access to the conference's panels & interactives, and later access to CHF's "Colleague" level Business Accelerator Digital Learning Portal.
