Learn what art school never taught you!

Art Without Limits gives affordable workshops in the business aspects of the art world. Topics covered in these workshops will be applicable across a variety of art forms whether visual art, poetry, music, and more. Often, these BizArts Workshops will explore subjects that we never learned in art schools as well as learn tools and strategies to build a successful career. There is an admission donation of $20, but any amount is appreciated. We do ask that you pre-register and hopefully donate below prior to the BizArts Workshop that you plan on attending. Thank you so much!

Do you want to raise $5,000-$8,000 from a 90 minute event? Attend our August BizArts Workshop to learn how! Successful fundraising isn’t easy; it requires dedication, valuable connections, and a lot of hard work. Raising money is a key aspect required for success, no matter what world of business you’re in. You must have persistence, marketing savvy, a passion for your work, and a knowledge for making great connections.

In this BizArts Workshop, the art of fundraising will be broken down into bite size pieces that will make raising money a breeze! Learn invaluable tips from expert Kathy Wertheim (CFRE and Master Trainer with the Association of Fundraising Professionals). She has raised millions of dollars in her line of work, and now she’s here to teach you the most effective techniques. Join us for this priceless BizArts Workshop and learn how to achieve success of your own!

Art Without Limits can work with you to give tax deductions to donors through our Fiscal Sponsorship program.

workshop Speaker

Kathy Wertheim, CFRE, has raised millions of dollars and taught fundraising to thousands of people in 22 states, Asia and Latin America. She is a Master Trainer with the Association of Fundraising Professionals, one of only 11 in California, and earned the credential of Certified Fund Raising Executive, which is held by fewer than 3% of fundraisers. Locally, she has helped raise money for the Santa Barbara Symphony, the Museum of Ventura County, the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, the Rubicon Theatre, the Ventura Botanical Gardens, and many more, all of which makes her sound fancier than she is. Personally, she attends about 40-50 arts and cultural events a year, and her goal is to have every wall in her home include artist-created art.


How would you like results like this: a fundraising event that takes only two people to arrange, can be conducted within 2-3 weeks from start to finish, that lasts only 90 minutes, and that raises $5,000-8,000? These are real results from recent fundraising events locally. You'll learn how to: find hosts, invite potential donors, talk about your work, and how to ask for money. You'll be able to showcase your art form, introduce new people to your organization, utilize your volunteers, and do it on a budget. These events can be repeated endlessly and anywhere, and when you learn how these work, they will also help you understand how to meet with and ask for money from major donors. Imagine someone writing a check for $4,000 - $5,000, or making a five-year pledge (real local results) from attending your event! This is your time to learn - you’ll get a handout explaining everything. Bring a board member or a potential host for great results!
