What is the Artist as Entrepreneur

Saratoga Arts presents the Artist as Entrepreneur Boot Camp, an intensive, multi-day professional development opportunity that delves into the real needs of artists who.  The program is presented by Saratoga Arts in partnership with the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and the New York State Council on the Arts’ State and Local Partnerships.

The Boot Camp’s structure is a blend of formal lectures, breakout groups, and one-on-one meetings. Participants work through a flexible and dynamic “action plan” that provides a blueprint for their future project, career, and business goals. 

Who can participate?

Artists of all disciplines and career stages are encouraged to apply.  Preference will be given to artists who live in Warren, Washington, Saratoga, Fulton and Montgomary Counties. 

How do I apply?  How much does it cost?

There is no charge! Artists interested in attending are required to apply, and participants are selected by a panel review process.  The application will be available April 1, 2019.  Look for announcements in your email, on facebook and on our website!

Our Community Arts Education Program

For nearly 15 years, Saratoga Arts has been dedicated to offering quality fine art and fine craft classes, taught by regional artists, to students of all ages and at all artistic levels. In that time we’ve grown our program to its current capacity, where it now serves over 950 students a year and works with nearly 50 art teachers.  

Located in the Arts Center at 320 Broadway in Saratoga Springs, Saratoga Arts has several fine arts classrooms, a weaving studio, a 110-seat theater, and three gallery spaces. We have on occasion, when our facilities can not accommodate a class, offered classes off-site as well.
