Collaborations and Commissions – Do you play nice with others, or are you tough to work with? Artists have a tendency to want to be independent, but the truth is that we can accomplish far more when we work together. Learn how other artists have collaborated with each other and members of their community to bring larger projects to fruition, as well as how to promote and handle commissioned works in a way that both you and the client stay happy.
