Jump Start your Art Career

What do you want out of your art career? Do you want to exhibit more often? Sell more art? Teach workshops? Get published? Create a polished, professional online prescence? This practical, hands-on class will guide you through an individualized course of study to attain these aspirations & more. Start by defining and setting your specific goals, create your brand, come up with a marketing plan and put it into action, all with step-by-step guidance from an industry expert.
Learn how to -
  •      create a brand that will help you stand out from the crowd
  •      outline a marketing plan to help you reach your goals
  •      put together a professional portfolio
  •      find, research and approach art galleries
  •      start an etsy store and promote it
  •      build up a mailing list and use it effectively
  •      analyze the success of your marketing plan
  •      get published - start small and think big 
With interactive lessons, homework, brainstorming, critiques and more you will be well on your way to realizing your art career goals.
On each of the six Mondays you will receive an email with the PDF lesson and worksheet for the week. The interactive part of the class will mainly be run from a private blog where everyone registered for class will have the opportunity to see the lessons in visual form, anyone comfortable with having the work they're doing for class will have it posted, and comments on each lesson will be highly encouraged to foster discussion, brainstorming and feedback.
The blog will have updates from me, relevant to that week's lesson, every weekday and I will be available for email consultation and help during the entire 6 weeks. The blog will remain available for three weeks after class has finished.
The PDFs and worksheets will help you focus on your own specific goals and the steps you will be taking to attain them, while the blog will help you track your progress, and your fellow students', with our real-life examples.
