"The Journey of an Artist is challenging...
let me be your guide."

What is The Working Artist?
How will The Working Artist help me?
The Working Artist teaches strategic and professional business practices to artists who ultimately want their work to be valued, respected, and sold.
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.
Dare to dream.
I believe that you can accomplish everything you set out to do, and I created The Working Artist to help you get there.
I am not very technical, what if this program is over my head?
It won't be.
The program is easy to follow and intuitive. If you have any problems at all, we are standing by to walk you through.
"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
How do I begin?
Our next session begins November 16th and runs 5 weeks with impletation week for the Tnaksgiving holiday. Make sure you've signed up to our mailing list so you can find out more!
Then how does this whole Working Artist thing work?
The Working Artist is a series of short interactive videos and activities that will appear in your inbox over the course of five weeks. How much time you devote to each video depends upon you, but plan for a commitment of at least an hour or so each week while school is in session. You can do this at your own pace.
Don't worry if life slows you down, you can start and stop as you need. And you can access the program whenever you wish for two months after the course ends as well as enjoy free access to future sessions.
The Working Artist includes an interactive workbook, a few short quizzes, and community discussions in each chapter to connect with other working artists. Once a week, Crista will hold support calls and you can phone in with your questions and challenges.
The program is intuitive and easy to use.
100% of students polled from the last session said they "would recommend The Working Artist to a friend."
I am not sure I am ready for The Working Artist.
No one is going to give you permission, so don't wait for it. I truly believe that this is your time - if you choose.
