WSU's College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts is teaching artists how not to starve

July 13, 2014


Recently, the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts (CFPCA) at Wayne State hosted a Business of Art workshop, teaching some of the skills found in the business school to budding painters and writers. "The arts have always been about entrepreneurship because artists, at some level, have to feed themselves," said Matthew Seeger, CFPCA dean. What Seeger sees on campus are arts students who are passionate about the idea of entrepreneurship, using their creativity as a way to chart their own paths.
