I’m excited to announce Daring Adventures in Creative Biz: Business & Artistic Discovery for People Who Want to Live Their Dreams. For 6 weeks, we’ll spend each week diving into what it takes to passionately run a Creative Business while staying inspired as an artist and creative.
This class is for you if you say yes to any of these questions:
Are you feeling stuck with your creative process? Do you want support and to be part of a community of creatives encouraging one another? Would you like to learn more about the various avenues available to artists to make a living? Are you wanting to dive deep and figure out your creative direction and authentic voice? Are you noticing it’s the beginning of Fall and you’d like to take some action towards your artistic dreams and goals?
This class will be chock full with inspiration, interviews and deep diving into your creative business visioning and income boosting streams! Like licensing opportunities! Like my video camera line and vases below and Abstract Dress line!
