Do I need to be a fine artist to get the most out of Making Art Work? Not at all. The concepts we are covering span all creative practices, businesses, and disciplines.
I am an established creative, will this course be too basic for me? NO WAY. We will be covering concepts that will stretch all of us, concepts that you can take as far and as deep as you need to.
In my experience, the hardest thing about being a “successful” and “established” creative is knowing how and where to channel my (sacred and scarce) excess energy in the most powerful and effective way. This course will offer you the resources to knowledgeably and confidently decide what that means for your business. In addition, the value of community only increases the further down the path you get. It can be challenging to find peers who understand you business and will champion YOU as you become more and more successful. Trust me, I understand.
I’m just starting out. Will this course be too much for me? Oh gosh NO. This course is THE COURSE I wish they taught in art school. It will give you all the tools, resources, mindsets, and goals needed to establish a sustainable creative business. As long as you feel good with creating, I can help you with the rest. ;)
Will you help me refine my portfolio? I am offering 10 portfolio reviews to the FIRST 10 people to sign up for the course (but this is a special bonus). Outside of this I will be doing a few portfolio reviews as a part of the course content but not across the board. So sign up quickly if this is something you are interested in! We WILL be discussing marketability and creating work that resonates (which usually means it is good) so advice on this topic will be coming your way.
Do I need to be in the US to participate? Nope! I hope to have creatives from all over the globe joining us!
What tools and supplies do I need? Not many! You will need access to a computer, a camera (iPhone, Android, and/or DSLR), and some work you are proud of. As we get into the course I’ll recommend some other tools, props, and supplies you might want to get, but these are the basics.
Can I purchase modules individually? Because this course is designed to build upon itself and bring your business all the way to profitability and sustainability, the content is not available in individual modules.
Will I be able to ask questions along the way? Heck YES! Both in the private Making Art Work Facebook group, in the Live Q&A, and in your smaller peer groups!
How do the peer groups work? The peer groups are 100% optional. If you opt in, we will assign you to a small group of 3-5 creatives. You will arrange meetings and talk via video chat as often as you choose (I recommend once a week). The benefits of a group like this are enormous!!! There is so much good in our collective wisdom, and it is so liberating and enabling to have a smaller tribe to talk with and be encouraged by! These groups are self-directed so you can turn it into what you need.
How many hours a week will I need to devote to Making Art Work? I recommend at least 2 hours (one to breeze through the class content and one for the Live Q&A), but you will get much more out of the course if you are able to spend 4-6 hours with the content, workbooks, and in the community discussion.
It’s worth stating again that this course is 100% SELF-PACED. The class content will be released each Monday and we will have a Live Q&A each Friday, but if this feels too rushed for you — totally fine! You are able to take it as slowly as needed.
What if I get into the course and realize it’s not for me? Totally fine! You will have 30 days to request a refund. Just show me your completed worksheets so I know you have done your best to make the course work for you, & I will cancel your enrollment no questions asked!
How long will I have access to the course content? 24 months. I may extend this, but I am committing to hosting the content and classroom platform for at least that amount of time so that you can revisit it as often as you like!
Ok, I’m 99% sure this is for me. What else should I know? I’m so happy to hear that. I want you to know that you are on the right path and that your creativity is worth the all the investments you are already pouring into it (time, energy, love, money, passion, care…) because you are creating BEAUTY.
I want you to know that you can move forward with confidence and clarity. Stress and fear and suffering DO NOT have to play a roll in your process or lifestyle.
I am an open book. I will share as much goodness and knowledge as I possibly can in the course content and you are able and encouraged to ask me anything as we dive into the content together.
I want you to move into the rest of 2019+ feeling SO POWERFUL and STRONG and BEAUTIFUL and FREE.
Ahhh…. I’m so excited for you. Let’s do this.
