“The scope of Leverage Your Art is astounding! I can't think of any other course that covers ALL the aspects of a creative business and in such a thorough manner.”
- AGATA KRZYSZKOWSKA
Imagine eight weeks from now having a gorgeous portfolio that you share with confidence, collaborate with dream companies, creating your own heartfelt products to sell, and feeling the exhilaration and pride of growing your own business.
As artists and entrepreneurs, our time and energy are incredibly valuable. Learn how to make the most of both in this course and get the most mileage from each piece of art you create.
As a fellow artist with a fourteen year career in the industry, I’ll show you how I curate my own artwork to create full collections and illustrations and “leverage” it across multiple income streams. Using art in as many ways possible creates endless opportunities for you as an artist and as a business owner. I can’t wait to show you how in this eight-week course.
A nurturing eight-week program of self-paced online video lessons, live online Q&As, expert interviews, workbooks, design briefs, and community encouragement.
Starting and growing an art business can feel scary and difficult. Many artists don't know the next steps to take after learning how to design. In this comprehensive course I dive deep into the different avenues of art business and then YOU choose your own path. Keep reading to learn about our curriculum.
