“I have personally taken more courses and read more books on being an artist and/or marketing for artists than I care to count. The Working Artist has been by far the most informative from the perspective of actual advice and helping me see my own art career from a different perspective.”

– Cyndy Carstens (www.cyndycarstens.com)

FAQ's

What is TWA?

The Working Artist is a comprehensive easy-to use online program for artists who wish to develop their professional practice. It is comprised of videos and interactive workbooks created with the “artist brain” in mind.

The program is on-demand, so you can take it at your own pace. Each week, for 8 weeks, you will receive new study materials and information. If you can’t keep up, if life gets in the way, you will continue to have lifelong access to The Working Artist so you can resume your study at your own pace.

Prepare to invest roughly 60 to 90 minutes per week.

“Such a useful course… I ended up with a one year and five year business plan, an artist’s statement and a whole new appreciation of how to combine my creative side with good business practice. Since doing the course I have a brand new website, a clear idea of where I’m going and had my most successful open house ever (double my previous best.) Coincidence? You be the judge…. Fellow artists, if you need a bit more business acumen sign up now. You won’t regret it.” – Sarah Kettalars, Artist, sarahketelaars.com

Can TWA help me?

The Working Artist teaches strategic and professional business practices to visual artists who ultimately want their work to be valued, respected, and sold.

It doesnt matter where you live. It doesnt matter what your medium. The Working Artist has helped artists and photographers around the world to achieve their dreams.

Through this proven and insightful program you will find direction and clarity in your career. You will create the tools necessary to achieve your goals. You will achieve meaningful changes in your practice. And you will navigate the art business with confidence.

I believe that you can accomplish everything you set out to do, and I created The Working Artist to help you get there.

99% of Working Artist alumni surveyed said they “would absolutely recommend The Working Artist to a colleague.”

What makes The Working Artist different from other online programs?

My own professional experience is 360 degrees. I’m not just an artist myself, I’ve represented over 250 other artists and placed work in hundreds of galleries and nearly every major institution in the USA. No other artist coach claims the same credentials as I’ve earned during my long career.

The Working Artist is a comprehensive program. As I build the program and add to it, you’ll continue to receive new modules at no additional charge. Honestly, if you feel that you just need help with one small part of your business, then you’re probably better served by signing up for another program.

But if you want a seasoned pro to guide you toward a strategic plan for your career, you can find no better investment than The Working Artist.

“I’ve done several art-business courses. This is by far the best online program I have worked with.”

Kadira Jennings, Australia

Am I ready for The Working Artist?

Yes. It doesnt matter where you are in your artists journey, understanding the language and expectations of this business is important. Dont wait to present yourself as a knowledgeable professional, start putting your best foot forward now.

Dont risk making the wrong moves or creating materials that youll later have to fix, instead create a solid foundation for yourself now.

Dont wait for the world to discover you or give you permission. Show the world who you are.

The Working Artist is valuable for is giving artists the confidence to believe in our work, and also to inform us how much is involved in the BUSINESS of being an artist as opposed to the process of just creating the art itself. I thought it was impossible before and now I don’t, but it will take time and lots and lots of tiny steps to get there I’m just very happy to be on the right path now.  

Mark Wallace, www.markwallacedigitalartist.com/

What if I don’t live in the USA?

It doesnt matter. Crista spent years teaching The Working Artist around the world, where discovered that the art world is a world unto itself. Today, there are Working Artist alumni in over 50 countries.

Worried that English isnt your first language? Our videos are all close-captioned to provide additional support.

Will Crista give me personal feedback?

I am not able to personally give feedback to all of the artists in the program.

I offer monthly Coaching Calls so that I can answer your questions both during your session of The Working Artist.

If you wish to have me look at your materials and help you strategize your way forward with what youve learned, I also offer one-on-one sessions for graduates. You can purchase this now as The Working Artist Blue Chip Program, and we can schedule your one-on-one after you finish the coursework. You can also choose to upgrade to this program later.

If you’re an artist and want to transform that into your main job, this is the mentor you are looking for.
