At Mint Artists Guild workshops, we teach creatives entrepreneurial skills – with artists and business people sharing expertise. And we empower our teen artists so in 2016, we added a “teens teaching teens” segment. Here, Damon Thomas AKA First Born shares some lessons he learned at the art fairs with Mint. 

Apply to Mint’s Learn & Earn program for 2017 by Jan. 23 and those who are selected may be invited to show and sell their work at the Palmer Park ART Fair in May. Apply online today!
