Last month, in lieu of an art crawl, the JSAC crew, consisting of members of the Jefferson Street Art Crawl staff and the North Nashville Arts Coalition (NORF), held an Artist Portfolio Day on January 26 at the One Drop Ink Tattoo Parlour and Gallery Nashville. For this free portfolio event, several professional artists donated their time and expertise to give feedback and perspective on the work of any amateur artist who wanted it. They also talked about techniques and gave advice on the art business and how to grow as an artist.
