We’re so excited to welcome art brand advisor Betsy Cordes of February 13 Creative for this unique business-focused retreat, designed specifically for visual artists. Betsy will help us develop visions for our brands and businesses that go way beyond the next year, or even five years. In fact, she wants to help us envision businesses that will sustain us for life!

Betsy will also devote lots of time to some of the practical issues inherent in running an art-based business: from income expectations, to negotiating, to project management. And she’ll be joined by her husband, intellectual property attorney Chuck Cordes. Chuck will help us see how trademark and copyright law help us build our brands and be good stewards of our intellectual property.

In between these deep learning sessions, there will be lots of time for excursions in and around Tulum—including its amazing Mayan ruins, and the surrounding jungles and beaches—as well as to enjoy some of the wellness offerings at our beautiful retreat center, Holistika.

Betsy is taking special care to bring together a diverse group of women artists who will benefit from one another’s perspectives and experiences, as much as from the information she and Chuck have to offer. It’s going to be an amazing week and we can’t wait to experience it with you!
