I made some art! 

 

Great.

 

I’m an artist now!

 

Not so fast...



Making art is first and foremost about creative expression. 


And I think everyone should do it. 


It feels great to do and is good for you. 


But I don’t think that just making art really makes you an artist. 

Now my definition of what an artist is might be a bit different from yours.

My definition of what makes an artist is someone who pursues art as a dedicated practice.

Someone who reflects on what they are doing and why they are doing it. 


Maybe they make a living from it. Maybe they don’t. But they pursue it all the same. 


And that’s what this course is about.


Really looking at the art you’re making and reflecting on why you are so dedicated to doing it.

Being an artist is about SO MUCH MORE than you think it is.

Yes, it’s about making art.

  • Why you’re making art.

  • What materials you’re using.

  • How long you’ve been at it.

  • And what makes it really sing for you.

But it’s also about:

SHOWING UP.

  • How do you share your artwork?

  • How do you define success?

  • Are you looking at the art of other artists?

  • How are you showing up in the world as an artist?

TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS.

  • Is the business of art even on your radar?

  • How are you pricing your work?

  • Are you being professional?

  • And how are you getting your art out into the world?

STEWARDSHIP.

  • How are you storing your work?

  • Do you know where it all is?

  • Do you have good images of your work?

  • What about taxes?

This course is all about helping you to better understand where you really are.

  • What really motivates you to be an artist.

  • What really motivates you to make art.

  • And what really motivates you to keep going.

There are SO MANY WAYS to be an artist these days, that the ONLY WAY to find your direction is to learn more about WHY you’re doing all of this.

Is it to...

  • Get fame and acclaim? Oh, and money too.

  • Create the most beautiful things in the world?

  • Become a master of your technique?

By learning what drives you, you can make better decisions about what to do next…

  • Try to get into lots of shows?

  • Teach others how you make art?

  • Sell, sell, sell?

Now this course WILL NOT teach you how to do all these things.

But it will teach you about what you need to learn next.

  • Up your business game?

  • Finally get that website up that you’ve been thinking about for forever?

  • Reconfigure your workspace to work in a different way?

  • Adjust everything you’ve been doing because now you have a better understanding of why you’re doing everything?
