How to manage your workload and avoid burnout. New date: Saturday, July 7 (First Saturday), 10 a.m.-noon.

If you are like most working artists or creators, you can easily get overwhelmed by the demands of the daily tasks. Unfortunately, what most people have learned about time management simply does not work for independent entrepreneurs, artists, and anyone who is outside the typical corporate 9-to-5 world.

In this class, you will learn the methods that will maximize the impact of everything that you do while minimizing the distraction and meaningless work. You will also learn the fundamentals of project management, goal setting, and how to stay flexible when unexpected happens.

Class fee: $40 per person including materials. Register online

How to price your artwork + plein air picnic day. New date: Saturday, July 7 (First Saturday), 2-4 p.m.

Pricing your artwork is often one of the trickiest subjects for an artist who aspires to earn income from their creative activities. It is often a complex interplay of art and science, in which many factors must be taken into account.

Creative Liberation Lab equips creators to become entrepreneurs. In this class, you will learn the key elements of pricing your art and how to make your artistic ventures economically sustainable for yourself.

After this class, we will be having a plein air picnic at an overlook nearby. We encourage you to bring art supplies and some food or drink to share.

Class fee: $40 per person including materials. Register online

Ride & Draw guided bicycle group ride: June 23, July 28, Aug. 12, Sept. 15, and Oct. 7. (Dates subject to change.)

This event takes you for a scenic bicycle ride, slow-paced, beginner-friendly, and with lots of breaks throughout the route. Discover South Columbia County's diverse landscapes. We will make several stops at points of interest for your sketching pleasure and for a picnic.
