APA|DC is excited to present “Prepping Your Portfolio: Strategies in the Age of Instagram” with Andrea Stern and Ranee Vespi of SternRep and AskSternRep, on Zoom on October 12th from 6-8pm! Andrea and Ranee will discuss business strategies for presenting your best work to future clients, from online platforms like Instagram and your website, to putting your work directly in front of art buyers in an online portfolio review. This event will be great preparation for our upcoming online Portfolio Reviews (November 1-2)!
