"I recently took the 'Conversation Sparkers for Artists' course, and it provided a valuable new perspective on promoting my work. The course encouraged me to prioritize building connections, and within weeks, I had a chance conversation with a fellow artist that led to a gallery referral! Now I'm preparing for a solo show this spring and learning new skills to present my artwork. Thanks to the course, I feel more equipped and excited for this opportunity!"
