Participants are given a handbook and workbook as well as handouts on practical how-to information.

The workshop is held at the Cultural Council’s headquarters located at 601 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth, Florida, and open to all artists who live or work in Palm Beach County. The most recent workshop took place November 20-22, 2015.
