“By educating artists about the business side of their craft, we can grow artists that work smarter and develop successful careers more quickly. This shift in mentality will open doors for artists in the long run to spend more time doing what they love, which is creating!”
Holly Blondin is no novice to the challenges that pursing a professional career in the arts presents. As a young child she was enrolled in dance, theatre, and voice classes and loved creative writing. This led to a professional career in musical theatre, which she later left to pursue design. She started a small greeting card business, and then earned an MBA in entrepreneurship and marketing so she could build a company that gave back to the arts. Arts Meet Bizness was born.
BFA & MBA, Blondin also supports education, and is an adjunct professor at Parsons The New School for Design helping to develop the Design Thinkers of tomorrow.
