This is an event for the whole family! Ever wondered how to turn your art, craft, and imagination into money? Learn from an artist/illustrator how to make a business out of something you love. Artist Carlotta Shuler will teach us how to price, setup a booth, imagine your presentation, how to take money, and more. Carlotta is a homeschooling parent, a yoga instructor for kids/adults, and a ceramics artist vending her pottery at art festivals everywhere! For more information about Carlotta:

The Executive Director of Art Garden KC, Beth says that Art Garden is a "well-organized hippie festival" where new and experienced artists sell their creative pieces to the public at Berkley Riverfront, Kansas City (1298 River Front Dr, Kansas City, MO 64120). Every last Sunday May thru October, AnySchoolers will have a booth for homeschooling families to sell their wares! Children, teens and adults are all invited to sell handmade items to the public from .25 - $10000000! All crafts and art are welcome from popsicle sticks to sculpture. Parents must supervise. Families keep the profits from their own sales, and the class on July 28th will outline options for how to set up your "business" at Art Garden! AnySchoolers will also have information available to the public about homeschooling, our community, and what home education is all about - so we'll be representing the world of nontraditional schooling to the public. Participating in this event opens the door to personal interaction with the staff of AGKC and will later open opportunities for AnySchoolers artist families for curated invitation-only events with AGKC as an organization.
