Powerful Tools You'll Receive

CONFIDENCE

The most used word in alumni feedback is ‘confidence.’ When you’ve got the right information, polished tools, and motivation you will be unstoppable.

When you rely on google for career advice, you get what you pay for. Nothing. If your art matters, the right answers matter and Crista Cloutier’s professional experience in the art business is unrivalled.

MOTIVATION

It’s easy to get overwhelmed. It’s easy to feel stuck. The Working Artist Masterclass will help you to move forward with purpose.

MENTORING

Each week Crista will offer Coaching Calls, personally answering each of your questions. Can’t make the call? Post your question online and she’ll record her answer. As your mentor, she’s committed to your success!

PROFESSIONALISM

Your mother was right. Reputation matters. And no where is that more true than in the art world. First impressions count. Make yours professional.

MONEY

You will save time, expense and heartache. Am I saying that you’ll make more money as a result of The Working Artist Masterclass? Perhaps – if you are willing to do the work.

“Using the tools I learned from Crista, in no time at all, I sold 18 paintings and got 2 new commissions! Today, I am a working artist.”

– Chico Coehlo, San Francisco.

About Crista

Crista Cloutier has:

  • sold millions of dollars of artwork to galleries, museums, collectors
  • run a gallery and nationally recognized studio

  • produced an award-winning art documentary
  • been published by major museums, magazines and newspapers
  • curated dozens of international exhibitions
  • collaborated with many artists from blue-chip to just-emerging

That’s NOT the whole picture…

“A few years ago, I crashed and burned. I hadn’t been nurturing my own creativity. I sold ALL of my possessions and moved to France to push the refresh button. There, I created a new life for myself as an artist – and as a writer who writes about being an artist. Using what I learned from my years as an art-business veteran, I developed The Working Artist.”

Today, The Working Artist has become a part of my own creative practice. I draw my inspiration from helping other artists – like you.  I never even dared to dream that it would have this kind of impact on so many, for The Working Artist has now reached artists in over 50 countries!

This is personal for me. I’m deeply dedicated to your career. So when you work with me, you not only get a mentor with an experienced track record, but also a high success rate. In fact, LinkedIn recently named me as one of their “Influencers in the Contemporary Art World.”

Are you happy with where you’re at in your art career? If not, what do you plan to do about it?”

The art world is very difficult to navigate. I wasted so much time reading the wrong stuff and listening to people who think they’re experts when all I was doing was going down the wrong road. The Working Artist got me back on the right road. Crista knows the art world and explains it so you can understand it.”

“This class was worth every penny – really, priceless.”

     110% Money-back Guarantee

I created The Working Artist Masterclass to be the most comprehensive and professional advice offered, so that artists can achieve results. In return, I expect the artists who work with me to do the work, giving your best by implementing the strategies I share.

So in order to be eligible for my 110% Money Back Guarantee, you must submit your completed workbooks within 2 weeks of the end of the course. In other words, I believe that if you do the work, you’ll succeed. But I can’t be responsible for artists who don’t really put in the effort. So that’s my deal. Give it your best shot and if it doesn’t work, you’ve got nothing to lose.
