This Wednesday at noon:
Artist/gallery relationships can be difficult, usually because the parties don’t fully understand what’s expected of them. Getting a written contract between the gallery and the artist is an important step in overcoming this problem. We will talk about representation agreements: why you want them, what they include, what you want them to say, and how to negotiate them.

Did you know that our both our Lunch+Learn hosts, attorneys Michael Heinlen and Tom Maddrey, both used to own galleries? In addition to focusing on representation agreements we will have room for general Q&A. Register to ask your questions!

Small Group Lessons, ON DEMAND. Check out our Private Lessons tab for a list of classes you can take privately, or with your family and friends at a time that suits you. Like our kid friendly 🍭Pour Painting🍭class taught my CU artist Lori MacLean.

Pour painting is a simple technique resulting in swirling, colorful palettes. In this lesson Lori will teach participants the basics of pour painting, helping with pour techniques, swirl patterns, and color selection. This class is an excellent choice for adults and families with children ages 8 and up. Each participant will leave with two 8x8’’ canvases.

Join three renown Dallas muralists, Jeremy Biggers (@stemandthorn), Hatziel Flores (@hatziel), and Mari Pohlman (@marpohl) and The Cedars Union to create a collaborative mural with a team of fellow high school students. Students will develop a mural around a central theme, learn technical skills for painting murals, and be introduced to the business of working with a site, client, and community for a large scale project. The experience will culminate in a celebration and reception of the accomplished mural.

Hosted by The Cedars Union and funded in part by the Office of Art and Culture, the program will held from Monday July 12 to Friday July 16th. The 12-14th are held at The Cedars Union on 1219 South Ervay St from 10am to 2pm. The 15th and 16th are held at the site of the mural, less than 10 miles from The Cedars Union, from 9am to 2pm. Lunch will be provided each day and DART fair can be arranged. Students must be prepared to work in the heat of the day. We will adhere to CDC rules for July 2021.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE JUNE 18TH BY 11:59PM
Applicants must be incoming Sophomore, Junior, or Senior DISD students. To apply students must submit 1-3 images of their work and a short statement about why they want to do the camp. Visit https://www.cedarsunion.org/teen-mural-camp/ . Link in bio.

WEDNESDAY!!! If you have ever sold or tried to sell your work, you are in business. We will compare and contrast various forms that business might take—from sole proprietorships all the way to LLCs and C Corporations—and help you understand which one will best suit you and help you achieve your goals.
